Event Details



Cordially invites you to our:


One Day Accessibility Training Session

Moving to a new country presents many challenges and opportunities for newcomers. The settlement process can be especially challenging for refugees with in/visible disabilities. Learning who refugees with in/visible disabilities are, how to welcome and support them is something the settlement sector is becoming more aware of. While our broader understanding of disability has led to the enhancement of legislations and programs; when it comes to the unique obstacles facing refugees with in/visible disabilities, service delivery has not been able to effectively address their needs.


Upon completion of the training you will be able to:
1. Compare and contrast how people with in/visible disabilities have been discriminated against in many parts of the world including Canada.

2. Explain the different social and cultural understandings of disability in different parts of the world.

3. Recall international, national, and provincial laws that are in place to protect the rights of people with in/visible disabilities.

4. Recognize how structures and systems of power impact people with in/visible disabilities.

5. Identify good/best practices to support the inclusion of refugees with in/visible disabilities.
