Will You Be Attending our Annual General Meeting on June 19th?
What's it really like to grow up with a disability? How can caregivers, parents and service providers help? What do youth with disabilities hope for their future? Learn all of this and more at the CTN Annual General Meeting panel event: #WhatIWantYouToKnow. The event is open to CTN clients, families, service providers, partners, employees, board members, community members and the general public and will serve to bring awareness and educate with first-person experiences. CTN clients who would benefit from attending the event are encouraged to join us. Please note that daycare will not be provided. If you are a CTN family and childcare is a barrier to your attendance, CTN will reimburse caregiving/babysitter costs for the evening. Please contact Sian Morgan at smorgan@ctnsy.ca to make arrangements.
