Employment and Social Development Canada
Youth with Disabilities Town Hall
Ottawa, Ontario
December 5, 2022
We would like to remind you that Employment and Social Development Canada is holding a virtual Youth with Disabilities Town Hall on Monday, December 5, 2022, from 11 AM to 1 PM (EST). The Town Hall will be hosted by the Honourable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion, as part of the Government of Canada’s program in recognition of International Day of Persons with Disabilities 2022.

We are inviting youth with lived experience (15-30 years old) to participate in this event. Registration for this event is required by providing the following information to no later than 5PM (EST) Thursday December 1st, 2022:

· Contact information: Name, phone number, email address
· Confirmation that the participant is between 15 to 30 years of age
· If accompanied by a support person, please provide their name, phone number, email address
· Official language of preference: English or French
· Interpretive or other services or accommodations that the participant requires
· Confirmation that the participant has read and agrees to the terms outlined in the attached ESDC Video and Photo Consent and Release Form. This may either be done by completing the attached form or confirming in the registration email that the participant has read and accepts the terms outlined in the form.

Please note the event will include American Sign Language, Langue des signes Québécoise, captioning (English and French), and official language translation. As a matter of workplace safety for our interpreters and to ensure they can readily understand the speakers, all participants are required to use headsets or earbuds with microphones. Failure to do so will result in not being able to participate in the discussion. Should this not be feasible for accessibility or other reasons, participants must advise us upon registration so we may explore alternate arrangements.

We appreciate your help in circulating this information to support youth participation in this event.
