Researchers at Carleton University's READ Initiative are collecting information on the current availability and demand for wheelchair-accessible taxis and ridesharing vehicles in the Atlantic Provinces. They are seeking individuals with accessibility needs interested in sharing their experience of personal transportation in Atlantic regions over a Zoom interview. Anyone interested may contact Kevin Partridge, at email@example.com with questions or to arrange an interview.
SE Health and the Covenant family have joined forces to create the COURAGE: Action for Better Aging initiative, a social movement for change to reimagine aging where older adults have choice, independence and quality of life. They are seeking input from older adults in Canada who live at home and in the community.
This survey hopes to understand daily living care goals and needs now and as people get older. They would also like to learn about the challenges people face to achieve these needs and goals. Feedback will help the COURAGE team prioritize its activities to support a new vision for aging in Canada.
Option to enter a draw for a gift card: Participants may choose to provide their contact information at the end of the survey to enter a draw. Complete the survey here

Call for Proposals: QUIET PARADE
In collaboration with MSVU Art Gallery, with support from the Bluenose Ability Arts and Film Festival and Eyelevel Gallery, artist Aislinn Thomas is seeking proposals and participants for QUIET PARADE, a sensory-friendly celebration taking place in Kjipuktuk / Halifax on the afternoon of October 15, as part of Nocturne 2022.
QUIET PARADE will be a parade and an opportunity to create an accessible, vibrant, low-stimulation event.
Through parade floats, creative movement, wearable art, puppeteering, and other forms of creative non-auditory expression, QUIET PARADE seeks to embody a quiet that interrupts the noise of the city, experimenting with new ways of creating and sharing space together.
QUIET PARADE centers folks who are Mad, d/Deaf, disabled, chronically ill, neurodivergent, and labelled with intellectual or developmental disability.
Proposals that support marginalized communities, artists, and forms of creativity are prioritized. Individuals, artists, ad-hoc community groups, or organizations are encouraged to submit proposals. Proposals do not need to be fully formed concepts.
If you have questions or need any assistance/support with your proposal, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for proposals: June 3, 2022 2:00PM ADT www.msvuart.ca
