International Week of the Deaf was first recognized and celebrated by the World Federation of the Deaf (WFD) in 1958. The purpose of the International Week of the Deaf is to promote the human rights of Deaf people in Canada and around the world towards to the politicians, authorities and the general public for our achievement of Deaf people and our concerns and issues in Deaf community across Canada.

The International Week of the Deaf is slated to schedule during the last week of September 18-24, 2017, and the World Federation of the Deaf has announced the theme for the 2017 International Week of the Deaf: “Full Inclusion with Sign Language.” The 2017 International Week of the Deaf stresses the importance of Sign language- without actual recognition, facilitation and promotion of it including the goal of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) cannot be fully achieved.

More information about #IWD2017 will be announced soon.
