3.21 Magazine Issue #5 Winter 2021-PDF
Welcome to the Winter 2021 issue of 3.21: Canada’s Down Syndrome Magazine! As this year comes to an end, we will all be glad to leave 2020 in the rear-view mirror. While the new year may start off looking like the previous one, we are all hopeful that the end of 2021 will begin to resemble more of the world we remember. For many individuals with Down syndrome, we hope this will mean a return to meaningful employment. Those who have found themselves on the sidelines during the pandemic hope to find more opportunities, and more doors opening for them as Canada continues its economic recovery. Paid work is foundational to independence, as is a place to call home. In this issue of 3.21, we explore the topics of employment and housing, discovering the many varieties of both that are available to today’s adult with Down syndrome. With the right supports in place, a happy, productive, maximally independent life is achievable for every person.
