Speaking with one of my friends last weekend I realized that not everyone with a disability is aware of the following services/programs available to disabled individuals. Granted you have to register yet the time spent is definitely worthwhile. To visit the sites please copy and paste the links to your address bar. .

Access 2
Two programs exist which can save you money when you are going to see a movie or making travel plans. In the case of seeing a movie it's pretty simple, participating theaters allow you free access the person accompanying you is required to pay the regular rate. I believe the card costs $20 yet you recuperate the cost of the card on your second visit, definitely worthwhile.
PS: Clicking on any link will allow you to select french forms

Easter Seals "travel card"
Travel we've taken Canada's Via train service from Ottawa to Toronto return trip for two people at a ridiculous price again I believe the person with a disability travels free while the person accompanying the individual is required to pay the regular rate.
In addition our experience has in the past always resulted in being bumped to first class which includes meals, drinks etc.
Well worth it believe me if memory serves me correctly our trip to Toronto return was less than $100

As a person with a disability who utilizes these programs I would like to say thank you to all the organizations involved in making these available for us.
Thank you
