CDBA Ontario Chapter

Canadian Deafblind Association Ontario Chapter is a registered charity and has provided services across the province to members of the deafblind community for over 25 years. CDBA Ontario is recognized within Canada and around the world as a leader in the provision of Intervenor Services. The organization was originally incorporated as the Canadian Deafblind and Rubella Association (Ontario Chapter) Inc. At the time of incorporation, Rubella was the leading cause of congenital deafblindness. However, due to the success of Rubella immunization programs, the incidence of Rubella as a cause of deafblindness has decreased significantly. Therefore, Rubella was removed from our name to be more inclusive, recognizing a wide variety of causes of deafblindness. CDBA Ontario Chapter continues to be a subject matter expert on Rubella and the name change does not affect our philosophy or our Intervention services. As a chapter of a CDBA National our organization has access to the largest network of intervenors and industry professionals in the country. This network provides us the unique ability to consult and collaborate on best practices and professional development with many of the country's best practitioners.
