Lethbridge Inclusion Awards


The Lethbridge Inclusion Awards is an initiative of the local International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) committee. This has been a longstanding group of volunteers dedicated to celebrating the contributions and talents of persons with disabilities possess to make our community a better place.

These awards will highlight the individuals, businesses and groups that break barriers to create a more open and accepting community for those with disabilities. Lethbridge is a great place to live, work and play. Every day, ordinary citizens are achieving extraordinary things to inspire change and understanding, touching lives along the way. We want to recognize these leaders, and the impact their actions make in transforming our city into a home that can be enjoyed by all. These awards will be presented Dec. 2nd, 2022 during the annual IDPD celebration.
