A new project entitled Disability and Rights for Citizens (DRC) aims to provide human rights workshops designed to educate people with disabilities about the CRPD.

The Centre for Independent Living in Toronto, ARCH Disability Law Centre, and the Council of Canadians with Disabilities present Disability and Rights for Citizens (DRC) Project.

DRC will run 6-10 human rights educational workshops and create a series of plain language tools to be distributed to people with disabilities living in Toronto.

The workshops will educate people with disabilities with regards to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and how it affects them as citizens of Toronto. The plain language tools will meet the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) accessibility standards and be distributed in alternative formats.
