The AMI-tv original series highlights the people, places, organisations or things that have made life a little more enjoyable for individuals living with a disability across Canada. Each episode highlights a community who come together through programs, activities or have identified a project that will help enrich a disabled person’s lie.
Easter seals Alberta created a new virtual programming, called Adventure Camp at Home. Each week they explore a new theme together through games, arts and crafts, music, movies and even virtual field trips. Since the COVID-19 pandemic is causing organizations and many events and conferences that originally were in-person to online virtual ones. Virtual events are now the way we work and engage and digital accessibility has become more important than ever.
