To mark the 2022 International Day of Persons with Disabilities, the Canadian Accessibility Network and Statistics Canada will be co-hosting a panel on deafblindness.
This informative session will provide insights into the deafblind community, share inclusive practices, and address misconceptions. The panel will feature perspectives and lived experiences from two deafblind individuals, as well as a representative from an organization that provides deafblind community services.
Visit the Deafblind Panel event webpage for speaker and panelist information.
