Project Announcement: Federal Accessibility Legislation

News & Events
November 8, 2016

The Canadian Association of the Deaf – Association des Sourds du Canada (CAD-ASC) is delighted to announce that the federal government has approved funding for our project on accessibility legislation!

Our goal is to submit two major reports to the federal government advising on their upcoming accessibility legislation. Working very closely with our partner organizations, we will provide the government with advice, analysis, and feedback from people who have communication disabilities of all kinds.

Specifically, CAD-ASC and our partner groups will monitor the nature and progress of federal accessibility legislation. Feedback from each partner will help us develop “real-life” policy advice in all aspects of daily life. This advice will assist the government in its development of legislation, and will provide it with grassroots responses when that legislation is written.

Leading this work is Pavel Chernousov, our Project Coordinator. He will keep you informed about our activities and he will make sure your own opinions, wishes, dreams, and concerns are heard by the federal government.

Please don’t hesitate to contact Pavel at pavel@cad.ca. We look forward to working with you!
