We are excited to bring the March of Dimes Canada's (MODC) Opening Doors for Accessibility seminar to Montreal. MODC has brought this important event to many cities across Canada, and with the help of Inspirations, we are fortunate to introduce it to the vibrant Montreal community. Together, we will share a day of discussion and exchange of information about accessibility in Montreal. Talks will be delivered in a mixture of French and English, but not simultaneously translated.

Opening Doors is a free event. March of Dimes wants it to be accessible to all. In addition to a fabulous list of speakers, our guests will also enjoy a continental breakfast and a networking lunch. And we have a big treat for you! You don't want to miss this opportunity to be inspired by the Projet RAD dancers! Founded by Luca "Lazylegz" Patuelli, Projet RAD is a dance company that believes that everyone can dance. They have made it their mission to share dance with people of all abilties.
