Empowering Deaf Women in Canada
What is the Empowering Deaf Women in Canada project?

“Empowering Deaf Women in Canada” is a project launched by the Canadian Association of the Deaf. This project will ensure that services provided in the fields of violence against women and health care in Canada will respond to the needs of Deaf women, that Deaf women will understand their rights and the services available and that Deaf women can fully participate in the decision-making process.

Deaf women will be involved in this project directly, through working groups to be established in ten locations across the country. These working groups will identify existing gaps in service; assist in the creation of materials to respond to identified needs and work with organizations across Canada to increase the accessibility of their services. Participating women will be responsible to share information and knowledge pertaining to employment, discrimination, abuse, and health care to the Deaf community and especially to grassroots Deaf women groups.
