What are CAN Connect Forums?

CAN Connect Forums are an opportunity to showcase CAN Collaborators’ unique work, research and activities. Some Forums will also include panel-like discussions where there are 2 or 3 Collaborators working in similar spaces, and we will facilitate a conversation about their work. All CAN Connect Forums will take place via an accessible, virtual platform and will be scheduled for the months where there is no Advisory Council meeting.

Who can attend a CAN Connect Forum?

CAN Connect Forums are open to everyone involved with the Canadian Accessibility Network (Collaborators as well as the members of the Committees). We also welcome members of the general public to attend any Forum that is of interest to them.

When will the CAN Connect Forums take place?

CAN Connect Forums will take place between 12 and 3 p.m. EST, for no longer than 1 to 1.5 hours, via Zoom. They are scheduled to take place on Tuesdays during the months where there is no formal Advisory Council meeting. Please see below for all currently scheduled CAN Connect Forums.

Is there a cost to attend a Forum?

No. CAN Connect Forums are free to attend! Please register in advance for the CAN Connect Forum(s) you plan to attend.
