Raising of the Regional Accessibility Flag - This event has already occurred

Event Details:

The Town of LaSalle will be raising the Regional Accessibility Flag at a ceremony on Tuesday, May 28 at 10:30 am at the LaSalle Civic Centre, 5950 Malden Road, to mark the beginning of National AccessAbility Week. National AccessAbility Week takes place from May 26 to June 1, 2024, and provides the opportunity to: 

  • Celebrate the valuable contributions and leadership of Canadians with disabilities. 
  • Highlight the work of people, organizations and communities that are removing barriers. 
  • Reflect ongoing efforts to become a better, more accessible, more inclusive Canada. 

The Accessibility flag, designed locally by Kristine Verbeek in 2022, depicts a stylized figure in a wheelchair facing the right side of the flag and 7 right-pointing chevrons. It symbolizes the 7 local municipalities working together, in the right direction, toward greater accessibility and inclusion. 

To show your support for Red Shirt Day for Accessibility and Inclusion which takes place on Wednesday, May 29 if you can, please wear the colour red to the Town of LaSalle Regional Accessibility Flag Raising ceremony.
