Join a Canada-wide Network to advance the CRPD!

Did you know? Canada recently agreed to follow the Optional Protocol (OP) to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).
What does this mean? The CRPD is an international law aimed at promoting, protecting and ensuring human rights and fundamental freedoms for persons with disabilities. The Optional Protocol allows people in Canada to make a complaint to the United Nations, in some situations when they believe their rights under the CRPD have been violated.
The OP LAB offers you the opportunity to learn more about the Optional Protocol and be part of a Canada-wide network engaged in acting for the implementation of the CRPD!
