Bio:

Roy Hanes, MSW, PhD. began his social work career as the senior social worker on the Spinal Cord Injury Unit at the Royal Ottawa Hospital in 1980. Although his primary social work focus was providing individual, marital and family counselling to people with spinal cord injuries Roy was involved with inpatient groups, outpatient groups and family educational and support groups. In addition to his work at the rehabilitation centre Roy became involved in community organizing with people with disabilities and he is a founding member of the Ottawa Carleton Independent Living Centre.

At the university level, Roy developed and taught the first critical disability theories course offered at Carleton University and in fact it was the first such disability related course taught in schools of social work in Canada. Roy applied his community organizing skills at Carleton University and he developed the first persons with disabilities caucus in a school of social work in Canada and he went onto help establish the Persons with Disabilities Caucus within the Canadian Association School of Social Work. During his academic career he has taught disability focused courses at the BSW and the MSW levels and he has supervised disability related honours essays, independent studies, MSW thesis, and he has supervised disability studies research at the PhD level. Roy has carried out research in the areas of disability history, disability and immigration, disability and employment, and disability supports. In addition, he was involved in a research project which explored accessibility, accommodation and supports within schools of Social Work across Canada.

Roy was invited to develop and teach the first persons with disabilities related course ever offered in schools of social work in Russia. Besides the social work and disability related work, Roy was a founding member of the Canadian Disability Studies Association and he has been an active member of disability rights organizations such as the Council of Canadians with Disabilities (Social Policy Committee) and he has been an executive member of the Canadian Centre for Disability Studies. At the local level he has been a board member of the Ottawa Independent Living Resource Centre and he is a founding member of the Committee On Disability and Abuse. During his 18 years at Carleton University Roy has been a member of most committees which deal with the needs of students with disabilities.  In short, Roy has 30 years of experience and expertise working in various capacities with people with disabilities. (practitioner, community organizer, teacher, researcher, volunteer, advocate.)
