is with great excitement that Design Exchange, in partnership with the Government of Ontario, has launched the sixth annual Connect Post-Secondary Design Competition. This provincial, post-secondary design competition seeks to explore design that is accessible to the greatest number of people, to the largest extent possible, regardless of their age or ability, across all design disciplines.
