Lights, Camera, Access!

 

Is a provider of a network of services to advance the presence and participation of persons with disabilities in the entertainment and digital media industries.

 

There are 4.5 million Canadians with a disability of some kind. Tap into this valuable resource – accomplished individuals who want to be included in our media.

 

Currently, people with disabilities are an invisible presence in the Canadian media. Lights, Camera, Access!(LCA!) is adjusting this picture. LCA! connects this talented culture to employment opportunities in Canada’s entertainment, arts and digital media industries. Be reflected on our screens and create the stories behind the scenes. Change your media lens, engage in inclusion!

 

Founded by Leesa Levinson, an actor with Multiple Sclerosis, Lights, Camera, Access! is a nonprofit organization with charitable status. In this creative age, the culture of people with disabilities is nonexistent in our public and private industry sector. LCA! sees the need and is fulfilling the demand.
