E-learning Training on: Creating Inclusive Spaces for Immigrants & Refugees with In/Visible Disabilities

Online Event: 


OCASI - Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants cordially is pleased to announce our English Self-Directed  E-learning Training on: Creating Inclusive Spaces for Immigrants and Refugees with In/Visible Disabilities.

Moving to a new country presents many challenges and opportunities for newcomers. The settlement process can be especially challenging for newcomers with in/visible disabilities. Learning who newcomers 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 newcomers with disabilities, service delivery has not been able to effectively address their needs.

Through this course you will learn more about:

  • immigrants and refugees with in/visible disabilities and their diversities
  • gain a greater understanding of the different legislations that exist internationally, nationally, provincially/territorially as it relates to the rights of people with disabilities
  • examine the relationship between disability, race, immigrant/refugee status and other layers of marginalization
  • become better aware of the requirement of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act and what their organizations need to do to become accessible in the long term
