In 2017, Canada will mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation. Canada has come a long way since 1867.
Today, Canada is one of the oldest and most prosperous democracies in the world, a leader on the world stage, and a recognized model of diversity and social inclusion.
Canada 150 is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for all of us as Canadians to connect with one another, to celebrate our accomplishments and work together to build our vision for Canada’s future. The many events, activities and initiatives that will take place in communities across Canada to mark this milestone will engage and inspire, help build strong communities and leave lasting legacies for future generations.
CDBA National recently applied – unsuccessfully - for a project grant through the Ontario Trillium Foundation to produce a video highlighting 150 examples of success stories in deafblind communities across Canada. The National Board of Directors is therefore reaching out to you to come up with an appropriate project idea to help us celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. While Canada 150 marks an important milestone in Canada’s history, you are encouraged to create a project that celebrates who we are as Canadians in 2017 and who we want to be in the future.
Ideas for your possible contribution to this CDBA project may cross a broad range of subjects including but not limited to:
- A memory you had at a CDBA event or conference
- If you are an Intervenor, you might submit something about what being an Intervenor has meant to you
- A family member might write about what Intervention has meant to their family
- A picture with explanation of an individual who is deafblind experiencing something truly “Canadian”
- A musing like “I remember when…..”
A proud moment or inspirational story related to deafblindness as:
-- An individual with deafblindness
-- A parent
-- A sibling
-- A grandparent
-- An Intervenor
-- A teacher/therapist
Canada 150 belongs to all of us! Please send any thoughts or ideas you have by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). ... See MoreSee Less
