Breaking through barriers for workers
who have children with special needs

Welcome to Special Needs and Moving On Projects!

Special Needs & Moving On projectsThe Special Needs and Moving On Projects provide resources and support for workers at the post office whose children have disabilities. The projects are available to members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers and the Union of Postal Communications Employees (Public Service Alliance of Canada). The Special Needs Project is geared to families with young children; the Moving On Project is for adult sons and daughters with special needs. Life is more demanding when you work and have a child with special needs. Learn more about our Special Needs and Moving On projects.


Playground Safetyold

Playgrounds provide a great source of exercise and a place where children can socialize, play creatively, and test their skills. Safe Kids Canada encourages families to enjoy playground play - it contributes to a healthy active lifestyle.

Injuries are often thought of as a normal part of play at the playground. While minor injuries, like bumps and bruises, will happen, some injuries are more serious and can prevent a child from getting the most out of healthy, physical activities. Serious injuries can be prevented!

Each year about 2,500 children aged 14 and under must stay in the hospital because they are badly hurt from falls on the playground. But there is something you can do to keep children safe. Choose playgrounds that have safer designs and supervise your children on the playground.

Do you have questions about how to keep children safe on the playground? Do you have concerns about the safety of your local playground? Would you like tips on how to build a safer home playground? You will find answers to many of your questions on this website.
