Dance On 3/21We want to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day and get Canadians moving! Join the Canadian Down Syndrome Society on Monday, March 21, 2016 and have a dance party - Dance On 3/21! Show Canadians and the rest of the world YOUR inclusive workforce, school, or class. Show Canadians your supportive family, friends, or community. Show everyone that YOU #SeeTheAbility!

Sometime during the day, stop what you’re doing and have a quick dance with your class, your school, or your work. It can be any length – a minute, 3 minutes and 21 seconds, or an hour!

CDSS Awards


The new Canadian Down Syndrome Society Awards (CDSS Awards) aim to honour Canada’s great, diverse Down syndrome community through two categories and three winners: Advocate of the Year (one $1000 bursary winner) and Inspiration Awards (two $500 bursary winners)

These awards, to be given annually to Canadians with Down syndrome on World Down Syndrome Day, now replace the Canadian Down Syndrome Heroes.

The Awards will be chosen by a committee of CDSS leaders - members of VATTA (the VATTA Chair and Vice Chair), members of the CDSS Board of Directors Advocacy Committee, and members of the CDSS Staff.
