THE HENRY VLUG AWARD
The Henry Vlug Award is presented for political, legal, or advocacy action that has significantly increased the equality of Deaf Canadians. This should be for a single action, e.g., winning a legal case, but it could also be given for a lifetime of this kind of achievement. It is open to Deaf or hearing nominees.
The Henry Vlug Award is named in honour of Henry Vlug, Q.C., for his many successes in political, legal, and advocacy efforts to increase equality. These successes include actions that resulted in full captioning of television programming, provision of Sign language interpreters in post-secondary institutions, and accessibility in court proceedings.
