Time In My Shoes

The Time in My Shoes (TIMS) Program is a hands-on experiential learning program designed to teach everyone about accessibility and inclusion.

The Council for Persons with Disabilities is pleased to be the recipients of an Ontario Trillium Foundation Grant to provide this program to schools and the larger community.

In the elementary school program, students will participate in sessions speaking to people with lived experience with barriers to inclusion and to try out some assistive technology and specialized mobility equipment. 

As the program is developed further, it will be offered to post-secondary schools and local businesses and organizations.
