National Down Syndrome Awareness Week is an annual campaign that gives Canadians the opportunity to recognize and celebrate the contributions made by people with Down syndrome every day in our schools, communities, workplaces and families. NDSAW is a great time for people to learn more about Down syndrome and help us advocate for equitable opportunities for people with Down syndrome.
