Conference Venue : Victoria British Columbia,   Canada

Conference Details : Frustration, isolation, desperation and finally resignation are words that describe the reality for many Indigenous First Nation, Metis, Inuit persons living with a disability, and their families, across Canada. Indigenous persons living with a disability often face complex and multi-jurisdictional barriers, restrictive policies and discriminatory attitudes when seeking appropriate and necessary supports regarding their specific disability related needs. These factors, and others, continue to contribute to the exclusion and the lack of recognition of Indigenous persons living with a disability as equal members within our communities and the continued marginalization of this group within an already marginalized population. The 2020 Gathering seeks to bring together Indigenous and non-Indigenous governments, leadership, community members, service providers and others from across Canada to connect, learn, form new and expanded partnerships, collaborate and identify the best practices within the Indigenous disability and health sectors.
