As a national organization, the Canadian Down Syndrome Society has high air travel costs. The volunteer board of directors and VATTA – Voices At The Table for Advocacy – come from coast to coast and meet face-to-face three times per year. Your donated Aeroplan Points will reduce the high cost of travel, allowing CDSS to focus more on resources, information and support.
