Accessibility and Assistive Technology for People with Disabilities
Enable Ottawa is now in its 5th year, bringing together individuals and organization interested in assistive devices and innovative technologies supporting accessibility and inclusion for persons with disabilities.
In view of these uncertain times, we cannot proceed with the in person conference and exhibition that we had planned, but also recognize the even greater need to stay connected with our friends and colleagues in the field.
Day 1 | Because We Can will celebrate the contributions of persons with disabilities.
Day 2 | Let’s Talk Tech focuses on the tools and technologies that remove barriers to participation
for persons with disabilities.
Day 3 | Building Community casts an eye to the future and looks at how we can work together to
create inclusivity in the new world that emerges after Covid-19.
We invite you to join us and lend your voice to the thought leadership discussions that is helping to
reshape the future of accessibility.

We couldn't be more excited about our lineup. Which talks will you be checking out?
