Thank you for visiting DeafWomenCanada.ca, the Canadian Deaf Women's Conference (CDWC) of 2007 is for you and your friends. Our hope is to host a conference that reflects women's values. Traditionally, women value the needs of people; the needs of friends, family, children and those who suffer. Our Conference theme, "Deaf Women: Honouring Our Past, Planning Our Future" reflects these values.

This conference hopes to encourage people and to provide benefits and advancement for all participants. Women are renowned for kindness, generosity and love that inspire healthy communities. We hope that you all will celebrate the spirit of Deaf Canadian Women. With that spirit, we can use our power to engergize and humanize society.

When you return home to your community, family and friends, we hope you will be inspired to share your experiences to all those you touch.

Greetings from the CAD President:

Hello Deaf Canadian Women!!

This is a very exciting time for all women as we gather together to learn from one another and learn more about ourselves through a variety of exciting presentations. Our goal is to build our self esteem, educate and empower ourselves so that we can be strong and independent for ourselves and the people we care about.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank the Deaf Women's Conference (DWC) committee who made this week possible. Thank you to the DWC Chairperson, Janice Jickels, and her committee who are working very hard to ensure that our vision to hold a conference for Deaf women in Canada becomes reality. We need to wave hands for Janice and her committee; without them, we would not have this unique experience.

This awareness and perspective that you gain from the variety of presenters and women you will meet at the conference you will carry in your hearts for years to come. It is our goal to provide each of you with the opportunity to garner experience and education from the Deaf Women's Conference; after all, Knowledge is Power.

Feel free to share your experiences - good and bad - you will be among friends at the conference. You may find that you share common ground with other women and from sharing each other's story, find moral support in each other. Most importantly, you will have found a new friend.

Again, I hope you all will enjoy the wonderful experience at the Deaf Women's Conference.


Sheila Carlin,
President of Canadian Assocation of the Deaf (CAD)
