Rumball organizations recognize and embrace our responsibility to ensure we welcome and contribute to a healthy society, which includes equal respect and attention to topics of diversity, anti-racism, discrimination culture and faith.  We encourage continuous dialogue, reflection and education to ensure we focus on inclusivity for all people.

About our Founder

The late Reverend Robert Leslie “Bob” Rumball was a pastor and advocate for the Deaf and those with special needs. His legacy began in 1960, when he established the Ontario Camp of the Deaf; and in 1979, opened the Ontario Community Centre for the Deaf (now called the Bob Rumball Canadian Centre of Excellence for the Deaf).
