This fact sheet explores the experiences of women with disabilities in Canada’s North. Based on research with women in FemNorthNet’s partner communities, it illustrates some of the positive aspects of living with disabilities in the North, some barriers to inclusion and access, as well as how resource extraction projects create changes and additional challenges for women with disabilities. The fact sheet identifies some key issues that need to be addressed to increase access and inclusion in the North and provides recommendations and resources relating to those issues.
