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).
