International Day of Persons with Disabilities 

Since 1992, the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) has been celebrated annually on December 3 around the world.

On Saturday, December 3, 2016 the Accessibility Office and the Art Gallery of Peterborough will host an event to celebrate International Day of Persons with Disabilities while promoting awareness of accessibility and inclusion of persons with disabilities.  

The event will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Art Gallery of Peterborough. The winners of the Accessible Peterborough Photo Contest will be revealed and some members of the Accessibility Advisory Committee will share their experiences. 


Our goal is to meet the diverse needs of all people and follow the principles of dignity, independence, integration and equal opportunity.

We will strive to achieve an inclusive environment for our facilities, goods, services, employment, information and transportation.
