“All too often, when someone who lives with a disability joins an organization, it’s a bit of crapshoot as to whether they’re actually going to be able to get into the building and get the equipment they need to do their job,” Philip Rizcallah told a keynote address at the launch of the Canadian Accessibility Network (CAN) based at Carleton University.

CAN is bringing together experts from diverse disciplines to drive collaboration on accessibility issues.

He’s the CEO of the Canadian Accessibility Standards Development Organization and has spent 30 years working on building codes for the federal government.
