The main goal of the Easter Seals Canada 2020 Community Conference is to share knowledge, inspire curiosity, and develop meaningful conversations among community members, community organizations, government officials, parents, educators/academics and students about issues that are of concern to the disability community.
Our theme is Beyond Social Inclusion – Taking a closer look at the intersections of Employment, Education and Income Disparity for people living with disabilities. The day-long conference is open to everyone and will include several workshops/sessions conducted by subject matter experts, and a plenary session with influential guest speakers for a panel discussion that will be broadcast via live stream over the internet.
The conference will also include a Student Competition where Ontario students from grades 10, 11 and 12 will have the opportunity to showcase their ideas, proposals, products which address real-world accessibility issues that affect their school and/or community and enhance the lives of Canadians living with disabilities.
