The Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) is dedicated to offering an accessible experience for all delegates at the 2023 Convention in Montréal, Canada.
All plenary sessions and forums, including videos shown during these sessions, will have closed captioning in English and French. We have also arranged for ASL interpretation during all mainstage events.
There will be a quiet room and an additional low-sensory room available for delegates with sensory sensitivities. There will also be an additional prayer room. We have also designated specific charging stations for mobility devices.
Delegates requiring specific accommodations or accessibility services to facilitate their participation must complete an Accessibility Request Form no later than Thursday, April 6, 2023. We cannot guarantee that requests received after the deadline can be accommodated. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are making your request after the deadline.
In line with public health recommendations to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and other contagious viruses and illnesses, delegates are encouraged to wear masks and respect individual preferences regarding social distancing. Delegates are reminded to take advantage of handwashing stations available in all washrooms, and hand sanitizer stations will be spread throughout the Convention space.
Should you have any further questions or concerns about your experience as a delegate with disabilities at Convention, you can visit the CLC booth to access support.
We all have a role to play in ensuring an accessible experience for all delegates. Please remember not to idle in hallways, at microphone stations, and near other access points, as these can cause an obstruction that would negatively impact the participation of some delegates. Please be aware that many delegates have severe reactions to chemicals, including those found in aftershaves, perfumes, shampoos, and other scented products. Please refrain from using scented products during Convention week.
If you have any suggestions on how we can make this and future CLC events more accessible to you and other delegates, please let us know at email@example.com.
We value and appreciate your feedback and concerns.
