Building on the information shared in the January 2016 Migration Matters Supporting Newcomers with Disabilities edition and responding to the need for more resources for newcomers with disabilities, this 90-minute webinar will explore barriers to accessing settlement services for newcomers with disabilities and how providers can improve accessibility to assist clients’ integration into communities.
