OBA PROGRAM | 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM (ET)

The CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind) Foundation estimates that approximately 500,000 Canadians are living with partial or total sight loss. How can you ensure that individuals who experience sight loss receive proper access to justice and appropriate legal services when they enter the justice system? How can you effectively communicate with other practitioners who may be living with sight loss? Join us to gather valuable insights on:

  • The different types of sight loss
  • What barriers exist for justice participants, and how can they be overcome?
  • Understanding your obligations under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) and Human Rights Code, and your professional obligations
  • What tools and resources are available, and how to determine what assistance may be appropriate
  • Achieving accessibility in the courtroom
