The City, in partnership with the municipal accessibility advisory committee (MAAC), is accepting nominations for the Celebrating Accessibility Awards.

The Celebrating Accessibility Awards recognizes a person, group or organization that has made or is making a significant contribution beyond legislated requirements, towards improving access for persons with disabilities in Kingston.  

This year’s awards have expanded to include multiple categories: education, employment, recreation, customer service, built environment, volunteer, youth and other. Nominate an initiative before Oct. 28, 2016.

On Dec. 1, join the award winners and special guest speaker Anna-Karina Tabuñar for a screening of her film “Talent Untapped.” "Talent Untapped" is a film, a movement, a tribute to people with visible and invisible disabilities. They prove that talent comes in all sizes, ages and abilities. Free registration is required for this event.
