We publish Abilities, Canada’s Lifestyle Magazine for people with disabilities, with a readership of about 60,000. We have also published numerous books and directories related to disability.
Our online portal, Access Guide Canada, provides a detailed look at accessibility across Canada. Access Guide Canada is offered as a public resource, under the stewardship of CAF. Over 1,200 volunteers have assisted in developing more than 17,000 listings of accessible places and facilities spread over 2000 communities in Canada. The list continues to grow through awareness campaigns and partnerships. It holds information on a range of destinations, including businesses, services, lodgings, attractions, restaurants, places of worship and recreation. The ultimate goal of Access Guide Canada is a Canada where accessibility is universal and Access Guide Canada is no longer needed.
CAF is a member of a national coalition in conjunction with Easter Seals and several other corporate partners, including Cineplex Entertainment, to offer the Access 2 EntertainmentTM card, which provides free admission (or a significant discount) for support persons accompanying a person with a disability at movie theatres across Canada.
