We Belong From Sea to Sea to Sea!
Or do we?
For this issue, we teamed up with People First of Canada (PFC for short) for the first ever Canadian issue of The Riot. In this Maple Leaf Edition, PFC members shared their stories of belonging. You might find that no matter where you live, people with disabilities want the same things – to be included in community life, be able to get around town, be free to choose their friendships and relationships, and be able to work and have some money in their pocket. You might also learn some fun facts about Canada that you never knew before!
Many thanks to People First of Canada. We really enjoyed this chance to work together. Keep up the great work!
We hope you enjoy this issue of The Riot (available in English and French).

More About The Riot!
The Riot! is for self-advocates – people with disabilities who speak up for themselves.
We hope that other people, like family members, staff and policy makers will enjoy it too. But these pages are written mostly for our main audience, self-advocates!
Here’s what we promise to do. We will:
- Make you smile. We’re not happy unless we make you laugh at least once.
- Give you good information.
- Write articles that promote self-advocates living in the community and taking charge of their own lives.
- Help make self-advocacy strong. Self-advocates are speaking up all over the country. We’ll give you opportunities to make your voice heard.
