PRLog - Sep. 2, 2012 - LETHBRIDGE, Canada -- uSwapit Canada has enhanced the accessibility of its website for Canadians with physical disabilities. Through a collaboration with eSSENTIAL Accessibility™, uSwapit Canada is taking part in a Disability Community Involvement Initiative, launched in association with leading advocacy groups for the disabled.
