Where everything began
1st Editions – June 5th, 2013
Access Discovery Days began in Montreal in 2013. Organized by OnRoule.org and helped by Independent Living Montreal, nearly 30 shops on the Sainte-Catherine Street West (McGill sector) were evaluated and recorded by participants.
2nd Edition – June 4-5, 2014
This year, the activity extended to Laval, where a dozen shops were visited on the Ste-Rose Boulevard on June 4 and was organized in collaboration with the ROPPHL. The next day on June 5, the activity moved to Montreal, again on Sainte-Catherine Street West (Alexis Nihon area), where nearly 30 shops were visited. The event ended with a 5 @ 7 at Lasalle College organized in collaboration with the Place Alexis Nihon Community of Practice. The following Non-profit organizations were also involved in the organization of this event: Kéroul, AlterGo and MEMO-Qc.
