World Down Syndrome Day

World Down Syndrome Day – annually on March 21st – is officially ratified by the

United Nations. It allows communities around the world to recognize and celebrate

contributions from people with Down syndrome.

Go21

Go21 is a celebration of Down syndrome. Like how spectators in a sport

yell “Go! Team! Go!”, we are celebrating our community with this name: “Go 21!”

Canadian Down Syndrome Week

Canadian Down Syndrome Week is CDSS’s way of showing the world Canada is a

country where ALL people are valued, fully participating citizens.
