Mohawk, George Brown partner with CHHA to address barriers for the deaf, hard of hearing community

Mohawk College, George Brown College, and the Canadian Hard of Hearing Association (CHHA) have partnered to address barriers to employment faced by Deaf and Hard of Hearing Ontarians. The partners will collect, analyze, and synthesize multifaceted data about this group of Ontarians; raise the profile of Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals in Ontario; and provide employers with opportunities to further support individuals in the workplace. The partnership has received a $750K investment from the Government of Ontario. “This project will allow the partners to create a gateway that would enable employers to see the value of hiring Deaf and Hard of Hearing Ontarians to strengthen their workforce,” said Bruce Belcher, Mohawk Deaf Empowerment Program Employment Pathway Lead. “We are resilient and possess the necessary skills to meet the demands of today’s economy.” Mohawk| Global News Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
