Creating Accessible Neighbourhoods (CAN) is committed to equity, diversity, and accessibility. CAN recognizes that people with disabilities and/or chronic health conditions have multiple intersecting identities that affect their experiences and daily life. CAN represents and honours all identities by centering decolonization and using an intersectional lens.

CAN works to collaboratively find creative solutions to, and educates about, barriers within communities, consulting on a wide array of projects including accessibility, transportation, advocacy, empowerment, disability awareness, poverty, LGBTQ2SIA+ (Queer) issues, Disability Justice, and more.

Creating Accessible Neighbourhoods empowers people with disabilities and/or chronic health conditions, educates communities about equity and accessibility, enables people to advocate for themselves and others, and celebrates diversity within our communities.

CAN operates on the stolen land of the sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples.

We recognize that this acknowledgement is a tiny piece in the larger context of the ongoing work that must be done to challenge the legacies of colonialism and create palpable disruptive change and true reconciliation.
