Saturday 30 January: Join Braille Literacy Canada (the Canadian Braille Authority) for its Virtual 30th Anniversary Presidential Panel

In 1990, an idea was born and the Canadian Braille Authority, now Braille Literacy Canada (BLC) was established. Over the past 30 years, BLC has represented the strong voice of the Canadian braille community – braille readers, transcribers, educators, parents of blind children, proofreaders, and all those who share our passion for literacy. BLC has played an integral role in vital research, code development and public education initiatives both within Canada and on the international stage. We have much to celebrate as we reflect on this rich history and look to a vibrant future ahead!

On Saturday 30 January at 8pm in the UK (1pm Eastern, 10am Pacific, 11am Mountain, 12pm Saskatchewan/Manitoba, 2pm Atlantic), Braille Literacy Canada will host a special Presidential Panel in honour of BLC’s 30th anniversary. During this virtual event, we will be joined by a majority of our Past Presidents in a lively open conversation on where braille and Braille Literacy Canada (the Canadian Braille Authority) has been, and our hopes for the 30 years ahead.

This special event is free of charge and open to both BLC members and non-members.

To participate, you should register by writing to [email protected] by 25 January 2021.
