Another Successful Luncheon for the Canadian Helen Keller Centre

April 27, 2018

On Friday April 27, CityEvents assisted with the planning of 14th Canadian Helen Keller Centre’s Annual Luncheon was held at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel.

This year, CHKC honoured the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM). The award was accepted by Josh Basseches, Director & CEO, of the ROM. They received this award as the museum has implemented many adaptations for disabled people and the deaf-blind community specifically. The ROM received a $5000 check in order to make even more improvements.

The Canadian Helen Keller Centre (CHKC) Award was launched in 2005 to recognize individuals and organizations for their notable contributions to the deaf-blind community in Canada. The event is hosted by–and is a project of–the Canadian Foundation for Physically Disabled Persons(CFPDP).

The deaf-blind community is a unique community of individuals with this dual disability. CFPDP aims to help change the way Canadians think about physical disabilities. For this, the CHKC and awards were launched.

CHKC is Canada’s first training facility dedicated solely to deaf-blind persons. Programs include necessary everyday skills such as home organization, grooming, personal finance, computer skills, communication skills like sign-language and braille and many more.
