Easter Seals Canada Board Member, Michelle Mahoney, was recently a special guest at the Air Canada Senior Staff Summit. Michelle joined Stephanie Cadieux, Chief Accessibility Officer for the Government of Canada, and Air Canada’s own Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer, Craig Landry, for a fireside chat on improving accessibility.

Michelle shared her accessibility story and the powerful impact that Easter Seals camps have had on her life. She also talked about the importance of innovation and affordability to accessibility improvements and why this matters for Canadians living with disabilities: safe, accessible air travel opens doors to work, school, adventure, sport, and the opportunity to make memories with friends and family, both across Canada and around the world.

Thank you, Craig, Stephanie, and the entire Air Canada team. Let’s move forward together for the benefit of every Canadian living with a disability.

Together, we can shine a light on the strength and resilience of individuals with disabilities and their families, and foster a more inclusive and compassionate world. We thank CIBC for its generous support of Easter Seals!
