½ Day Accessibility Training Session

Moving to a new country presents many challenges and opportunities for refugees.

However, this experience can be pretty challenging for refugees with in/visible disabilities.

Learning who refugees with in/visible disabilities are, how to welcome and support them is a significant step towards an inclusive settlement sector.

After all, despite having a broad understanding of disability, we still fail to understand the unique obstacles that refugees with in/visible disabilities face.

It seems that the settlement sector has been unable to effectively address their specific needs.

The Ontario Council Of Agencies Serving Immigrant (OCASI) is organizing a ½ day accessibility training session to better cater to the needs to refugees with in/visible disabilities.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn more about relevant legislations including the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act and the Ontario Human Rights Code

  • Identify best practices to support the inclusion of immigrants and refugees with in/visible disabilities

Date: Friday, 15th of February, 2019

Time: 9:00 a.m to 12:00 p.m

Location: Catholic Crosscultural Services , 3660 Hurontario St 7th floor , Mississauga
