The Canadian Down Syndrome Society is proud to announce another successful week dedicated to raising awareness about Down syndrome. From November 1 to 7, the abilities and contributions of Canadians with Down syndrome have been showcased across Canada. Across the country, communities hosted Go21s, fundraisers, and events in honour of this incredible community. CDSS believes community inclusion is the best model for all Canadian citizens.

National Down Syndrome Awareness Week

Opportunity. That’s what Dewlyn Lobo and the 45,000 other Canadians with Down syndrome need in order to make a difference in their communities and in the workforce. The Canadian Down Syndrome Society (CDSS) wants Canadians to know that people with disabilities can contribute and work - they just need the opportunity to do so.

For National Down Syndrome Awareness Week, every day we'll be sharing employment stories at www.cdss.ca/ndsaw. Visit the site to read the first story featuring Dewlyn!

And don't forget - we'd love to hear from you! Tell us your employment stories using #SeeTheAbility! We're on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! You can also us at .
