FOCUS GROUP PARTICIPANTS NEEDED

 

The Ministry of Community and Social Services would like to better understand how
individuals who use Interpreter services are benefiting from these services and what we
can do to improve services and supports for those who require them. We welcome you
to participate in an upcoming focus group.

See below in ASL

When: October 26, 2017, from 5:30-7:30pm. A light meal and refreshments will be served.

Where: Toronto (exact location to be confirmed)

What you might be asked:
1) On a regular day, what does an interpreter assist you with?
2) What difference does having access to interpreter services make in your life?
3) Think about a day when you did not have access to an interpreter. How did you
feel? What activities were you unable to do or participate in?

RSVP: If you are interested in participating, please RSVP to REU@ontario.ca or call
416-212-7231 by October 12, 2017, so that we can confirm the number of participants.
Details of the location will be shared with confirmed participants.

ASL/LSQ interpretation will be provided and your transportation costs (i.e., public
transit, taxi, mileage) will be reimbursed as well as other eligible expenses (e.g.,
parking, personal support worker if needed). In order to claim your transportation and
eligible expenses, you are required to submit your receipts.

If you have any questions or if you are unable to participate, but would still like to share
your thoughts, please email us at REU@ontario.ca.

Thank you.
