Manitoba Access Awareness Week resources published

Originally posted: June 02, 2021

Manitoba Access Awareness Week (MAAW) is May 30 through June 5.

Established by the Manitoba Accessibility Office, MAAW provides opportunity for discussion and engagement in practices that we can remove barriers for individuals with disabilities. You can learn more about MITT's commitment to accessibility, here. 

While current COVID-19 restrictions have meant that in-person programs will not take place, a large number of virtual resources continue to be made available to MITT students and staff so they can either utilize these areas for themselves or become the best ally to persons with disabilities.
