Deaf Community’s petition for WIDHH and WIDHH’s reply

FROM THE DEAF COMMUNITY TO WIDHH:

THIS IS A PETITION ADDRESSED TO THE BOARD OF WESTERN INSTITUTE FOR THE DEAFAND HARD OF HEARING. OUR REASONS FOR THIS PETITION ARE:

– It is the Vancouver Association of the Deaf that founded the Western Institute for the Deaf so the WIDHH’s origins are within the British Columbia Deaf Community;
– Members of the B.C. Deaf Community are deaf and have experienced being deaf, and are very familiar with issues confronting the deaf;
– We-the Members of the B.C. Deaf Community- have seen the decay of the services for the deaf within the Province such as the provinical school for the deaf and the provincially contracted mental health programme;
– Too often programmes for the deaf decay whenever they are under the management of non-deaf persons, thus prolonging sufferings experiences by Members of the B.C. Deaf Community; and
– We are concerned about services for the Deaf, and seek to reverse the decaying trends.

THEREFORE, WE DEMAND THE FOLLOWING:

– Whenever a vacancy occurs in the position of the Executive Director of WIDHH, the position must be fulfilled by a culturally Deaf person;
– Whenever a vacancy occurs in the position of the Deptartment Head of Interpreting Services in WIDHH, the position must be fulfilled by a culturally Deaf person; and
– A screening and hiring committee composed of at least 51% culturally Deaf persons be supported by the Board for the sole purposes of informing Deaf communities across Canada, of determining qualifications, of screening and hiring.
