Canadians with an intellectual disability have known the pain of isolation and exclusion long before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Many children, youth, and adults with an intellectual disability are often left out of the conversation, on the playground, and in the workforce.
An Intellectual disability does not prevent a person from succeeding - lack of opportunity and exclusion do. Together, we have the power to change that.
Special Olympics Canada is leading the inclusion movement. For 49,600 athletes with an intellectual disability across Canada, Special Olympics is an opportunity to discover new talents, make new friends and gain confidence both on and off the field.
At any obstacle faced, our athletes always show up to meet the challenge. Now, our athletes challenge you to put your support behind this movement creating inclusive communities across Canada — sign the pledge today.
