The Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrant - OCASI in partnership with Malvern Family Resource Centre invites service providers in the settlement, disability and VAW sectors and people with lived experience as immigrants and refugee women with in/visible disabilities and Deaf women to a round-table discussion. 

The objective of the round table is to provide the sectors with an opportunity to discuss the strengths and gaps that exist in supporting immigrants and refugees (including newcomer) women with in/visible disabilities and Deaf women with a special focus on abuse, and to develop strategies and opportunities for collaboration in order to effectively support immigrants and refugee women with in/visible disabilities and Deaf women.

The maximum number of participants is 40. Participation will be confirmed on a first come, first served basis.

We ask that no more than ONE participant register from each agency.

Some registration spots are reserved for people with lived experience as immigrants/refugee women  with in/visible disabilities and Deaf women. 

Refreshments and lunch will be provided.
