    A new Government of Canada website promises to make it easier for people with disabilities to get around our country.


    A recently launched website just might make your summer vacation a little easier to plan.
    The website (www.accesstotravel.gc.ca) is designed to provide centralized and accessible information on transportation and travel services to persons with all manners of disabilities. The site includes information on bus, rail, air and ferry transportation in Canada. It also houses information on government programs and policies, local public and private transportation, and links to other accessible transportation sites.

    The website is an attempt to ease confusion created by differences in accessible transportation services between various communities and jurisdictions. It also provides information that is relevant to caregivers and families of persons with disabilities, as well as seniors.

    "It is important that we provide all Canadians with the most efficient and accessible transportation system possible," said Transport Minister David Collenette as he unveiled the website in early April.


    The website was developed in partnership by the Government of Canada, several provincial governments, and not-for-profit organizations.

    Sounds good...but...

    I once got a list of accessible housing with comments like:
    'wheelchair accessible- has steps'

    "It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible
    to find it elsewhere."
