Founded by Heads Up for Inclusion (HUI) and The Council for Persons with Disabilities (CPD) https://www.pcpd.ca/, The Accessibility and Inclusion Network is a network that seeks to increase accessibility and inclusion for persons with differing abilities in the Peterborough/Nogojiwanong region.
Vision: A strong and inclusive community.
Brand Promise: Working together, and empowering others to create accessible communities where persons of all abilities have equitable opportunities
Through the collaboration, the Accessibility and Inclusion Network can serve and support the community more effectively through:
We can make a difference together.
Through working together over the years in support of each other’s efforts, HUI and CPD identified several areas where their missions and goals intersect. After gaining feedback from the community, and after thoughtful consideration, it was decided that the two organizations would come together in a collaboration to enhance their ongoing efforts. Together, the collaboration seeks to uphold the principles of accessibility, diversity, equity, inclusion, kindness, and respect.

Community Building Committee
We are seeking community members who are dedicated to fostering inclusion and building accessible communities and who have experience in community building and outreach to help us develop relationships and partnerships within the Peterborough/Nogojiwanong community.
Navigating community supports and services can be difficult for people, especially as someone experiencing barriers or as a care giver. The Accessibility and Inclusion Network is seeking to build a network of service and support within our community to help ease that burden of navigation.
