Board and Staff Members posting with the Accessible City Award


We are delighted to announce that the Western Institute for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (WIDHH) were recipients of the “Accessible City” Award 2018 at last night’s City of Vancouver Awards of Excellence. These awards recognize the outstanding achievements of individuals and organizations, across five categories of excellence that benefit everyone by making Vancouver more green, healthy, diverse, and accessible.

Barbara Brown, WIDHH President said “We are hugely grateful and honored to have been named the “Accessible City” 2018 award winners. For over 60 years WIDHH has been dedicated to creating an accessible society where Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals are able to fully participate. We are very proud to contribute in making the City of Vancouver a more accessible place to live and work and thank you to all of our volunteers, members and donors, without your support this would not have been possible.”
