Statement for the Online Regional Consultations with the CRPD

In June 2021, Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) organized a series of online regional consultations in order to gather insights to inform a draft Guidelines on Deinstitutionalization, including in emergencies. 

At the Caribbean and North American Regional Consultations, Autism Alliance of Canada Board Members, Maddy Dever, Rebekah Kintzinger and Corey Walker, shared their insights on institutionalization and deinstitutionalization in the times of COVID-19 with other self-advocates and disability organizations across the region.
