Empowering Community and Removal of Barriers (ECRoB)
This project ECRoB will take place over the next two years, funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Social Development Partnerships Program – Disability. This project has three goals:
1. To raise awareness, across Canada, about the legal rights of people with multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) and other disabilities so that they can access accommodation;
2. To create a group of educators who can deliver workshops across Canada to teach and inform other organizations about the disability, accessibility, and appropriate accommodations required for accessibility;
3. To strengthen the connections between legal, medical, environmental, and disability groups to address accessibility in all these sectors and remove barriers (such as fragranced/perfumed or toxic products) that currently prevent access to the people experiencing the disability of MCS.
We are working with several other partners who are committed to supporting these goals, and will help us to connect with diverse groups across Canada. By sharing this knowledge, we will be able to work together to advocate for the protection of people with MCS in several different domains, and we will build a larger community with the general population so that we can work together to advocate for healthy spaces everywhere.
As more information becomes available about this project, we will continue posting here with new updates. We will also share this information by email, so be sure to become a member and sign up for our mailing list to stay up to date.
