Hello Spotlight Partners,
We need your help in encouraging people to attend our upcoming in-person consultations.
The Canadian Hard of Hearing Association (CHHA) is one of five organizations selected to conduct national consultations to formulate recommendations through their members and stakeholders on the proposed federal accessibility legislation. The project has been funded by the Government of Canada’s Social Development Partnerships Program - Disability component, CHHA is spearheading the Spotlight on Invisible Disabilities Project with 20 partners<http://www.chha.ca/chha/spotlight.php#partners> who represent the interests of over 9 million Canadians who are relying on these consultations to change legislation to improve accessibility and inclusion of Canadians with disabilities.
