The Bob Rumball Centre for the Deaf
The Bob Rumball Centre for the Deaf is a multi-purpose, multi-program facility that functions both as a community centre for the Deaf, and as a provider of services to the Deaf. The Centre operates a wide variety of programs, as well as offering a home for the activities and offices of Deaf groups and associations. Several of our programs are residential, with apartments on site, and so the Centre is also home to Deaf seniors and Deaf people with special needs.
About the Centre  
The Bob Rumball Centre for the Deaf was the first facility of its kind, and for over 30 years it has provided the Deaf Community a space without communication barriers. Within this space an educational, independent living, and a social environment for the Deaf has blossomed.
 
From its starting point as a community recreation facility, the Centre has expanded into offering a range of specialized services to those within the Deaf Community that require support. These include seniors, those with developmental, physical, health, or mental health issues, infants and young children, and newcomers to Canada.
 
These programs and services are often unique, and offer the access to care, education, and socialization that improves quality of life for Deaf people.
