CWDO to Host Webinar on Assisted Suicide

In February, the Supreme Court of Canada lifted the ban on assisted suicide. It is now critical for people with disabilities to speak up about safeguards needed so we are not offered assistance suicide as an option when services and supports are lacking.

 

Join us on Sunday, April 26 at 3:00 PM EDT to discuss this important topic. Guest speakers will include Catherine Frazee, former Chief Commissioner of the Ontario Human Rights Commission; Jim Derksen, lifelong advocate on the human rights of people with disabilities; and Amy Hasbrouck, activist and founder of Toujours Vivant/Not Dead Yet.

 

People with disabilities from across Canada will be joining us online. Members of the medical community, politicians and media will also be invited to hear our recommended safeguards.

 

 

Thanks to the Council of Canadians with Disabilities, captioning and ASL can be offered. Please state your accommodation needs on the registration form.

Preliminary Research Findings of Human Resource Professionals and Disability - February 9, 2010

Presenter: Kim Wrigley-Archer
Human Resources personnel, responsible for the ‘people’ part of business, have considerable impact on decisions to hire, retain, and promote persons with disabilities as well as in maintaining respectful work environments. Past employment studies have documented the high unemployment rates among working age adults with disabilities in comparison to the non-disabled population in Canada. Hidden discrimination and negative attitudes are perceived by persons with disabilities to be a major cause. All this suggests that more attention needs to be paid to the education of Human Resource personnel.  In this Webinar, the researcher will outline her research design and preliminary findings of this cutting-edge research.

Indexing, Capabilities, & Disability Webinar - Date TBC

Presenter:  Christopher Riddle

This webinar engages in a discussion with the notion of equality as it is entrenched in the constitutions of some countries and accepted in many others as fundamental to the notion of governance.  Christopher examines the predominant answer to the question, ‘Equality of what?’, and suggests that despite the recent wealth of theorizing surrounding Amartya Sen’s ‘Capabilities’ approach to human development and health, employing the notion of equality in such a manner does not ensure a minimal account of justice for people with disabilities.
