CFN Productions - Speaker Series Event

Wednesday night CFN held its 3rd Speaker Series Event, addressing the often overlooked topic of disability & displacement. The panel and lead presenter Dr. Yahya El-Lahib of the University of Calgary discussed how marginalized social groups such as people with disabilities are the first to fall through the cracks and how such circumstances leads one to ask what can we do differently in supporting the settlement and integration experiences for immigrants and refugees with disabilities?

Thank you to Dr, El-Lahib and the panel, Dr Anne Hughson, Helene DeKlerk and Denise Duchak. Most of all a big thank you to all those members of the community who joined us and offered their thoughts and views on this important topic. In the end, this night was for you.
