We would like to thank Lee Smith and the group of volunteers associated with the University of Windsor Disabilities Studies Student Association for their efforts in making World Down Syndrome day in Windsor such a memorable day.  To recognize World Down Syndrome Day, on March 21, 2015, Lee organized a fantastic walk on our beautiful riverfront with proceeds benefitting the Windsor-Essex Down Syndrome Association.
Thank you so much for all of the time and hard work that went into planning this event and for bringing awareness to individuals with Down Syndrome.  We are so honoured to have been chosen as the charity of choice by the Student Association.
Thank you also to the many families who came out and braved the cold! Even with the cold and wind, there was nothing but warm hearts and love!!

Disability and Law Learning Series

Social Assistance and Benefits

The series is open to the public and we hope that members of the disability community and their families, friends, and allies will be able to benefit from it. It’s well known that there is a legal maze that surrounds people with disabilities in everyday life. This seminar aims to provide information on a number of salient legal topics affecting people with disabilities through the lifecourse. The seminars will be delivered by law students. The sessions are not designed to provide legal advice.

Using Complaint Mechanisms Effectively for Disability-Related Issues will be held at Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare in the Emara building, Chrysler Room – Beside Parking Lot D. They are being held in association with the Beyond Disability Rehabilitation Network.
