We live in a society of a broken system that wrongfully discriminates Black people. We demand accountability and commitment to equity for all people in our society!

Everyone is responsible to end hate and ignorance against Black people.

Deaf Literacy Initiative will be reviewing its current policies and practices to ensure there's no racism within our agency. We are committed to increasing racism workshops for our employees and practitioners/learners in the Deaf and DeafBlind stream.



Deaf Literacy Initiative joins in solidarity the fight against racism and violence.

The Ottawa Hospital is excited to announce that in collaboration with the Deaf PFAC (Deaf Patient Family Advisory Committee), they have taken the lead in ensuring that Deaf communities have access to ASL and LSQ on the TOH website regarding interpretation services during the COVID-19 pandemic. The announcement is available on the TOH website in English, French and ASL. The LSQ version will come very soon. Click the "view" to visit the site for the full ASL announcement.

ASL and LSQ icons will soon be posted on the main page of The Ottawa Hospital website: Once you click the preferred language (English or French), it will automatically take you to patients/visitors/accessibility/interpretation page where you will see ASL or LSQ icons.
