A discussion on the pressing issues facing Ottawa seniors, persons with disabilities, and others facing barriers to accessibility in Ottawa

About this Event

Wednesday, January 22, 4 pm

Ottawa Art Gallery, Studio Space

Join PAL Ottawa and friends for a discussion on the pressing issues facing Ottawa seniors, persons with disabilities, and others facing barriers to accessibility with Ottawa Centre MPP Joel Harden. Share your concerns regarding issues related to being a senior, to dealing with disability, to accessing the services you need to live a dignified and comfortable life.

Harden’s parliamentary roles include sitting on the Standing Committee on Social Policy, and the Official Opposition Critic for Seniors; Accessibility and Persons with Disabilities and Pensions.

From issues regarding the barring of relatives’ visits to retirement homes and implementing recommendations of the latest review of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) to working with families struggling to get help through the provincial autism program, Joel is a very active Parliamentarian who also has a strong musical background. He’s equally likely to get you to sing along with a tune as he is to present a clear and honest picture of decisions at Queen's Park that affect your lives.

Harden recently noted: “The over 1.9 million Ontarians who live with disabilities face constant barriers to their participation in areas including employment, education, health care and recreation. As the population ages, the number of people living with a disability will grow.”

Members of PAL Ottawa have met with Mr. Harden and shared our vision for a city that includes a live/work space for senior arts workers.
