$30-Million Strategy Opening Doors For Manitobans With Disabilities: New Investments Kick-start Consultations to Build Foundation for Comprehensive Strategy (Government of Manitoba).

Aug 04, 2009

"This investment in creating a more accessible, inclusive society marks the launch of consultations that will build the foundation for a long-term vision for Manitobans with disabilities, Mackintosh said. 'Everyone has abilities. People are not 'disabled' except by our attitudes and the environment built around them,' Mackintosh said. 'Our challenge is to unleash the untapped energy by breaking down barriers.' As a basis for consultations, Mackintosh released a document that focuses on 10 priorities for action as the province seeks to build on its 2001 strategy: Full Citizenship: A Manitoba Strategy on Disability."
