United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

Posted in: NBACL Blog

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) is a document that was created to make sure that all people with disabilities have full and equal enjoyment within their community.

The CRPD is an international agreement (ratified by Canada in 2010) that brings attention to the rights of persons with disabilities in areas such as inclusive education, employment, community inclusion, and health.

NBACL and students from the Social Work Program at St. Thomas University have collaborated to create a plain language webinar series that will give an overview of the CRPD: what it is, why it matters, and an explanation of some of the sections of the agreement.
