MBDSS Slogan

March 21st World Down Syndrome Day

World Down Syndrome Day is the international day for raising awareness for people with Down syndrome. It occurs annually on March 21 and is officially ratified by the United Nations.

 21 March 2013 marks the 8th anniversary of World Down Syndrome Day, a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012. Each year the voice of people with Down syndrome, and those who live and work with them, grows louder. But there is still so much more we can do.Down Syndrome International encourages our friends all over the World to choose your own themes, activities and events to help raise awareness of what Down syndrome is, what it means to have Down syndrome, and how people with Down syndrome play a vital role in our lives and communities. 

Canadian Down Syndrome Society invites all Canadians to “See the Ability”! Take a picture like the one above – a photo of you with your loved ones and friends holding up a sign that says “See the Ability” and send it to us. We’ll make a photo montage video, with the collection of photos, and post it on World Down Syndrome Day to show the world that Canadians “See the Ability!”
