A Message from the Chair and President & CEO Easter Seals Canada 2017 - 2018 Board of Directors Rhonda Rubin, Chair (NB) Dale Briske, Past Chair (AB) Stan Lautsch, Vice-Chair (SK) John Herhalt, Treasurer (ON) Adriana Dolnyckyj (NS) Andy Livingston (SK) Anne Ewen (AB) Craig Munro (BC) Debbie Couch (AB) Denise Durfy Sheppard (NL) Doug Bridgman (NB) Doug Surtees (SK) Gail Schmidt (MB) Glen Hughes (NB) Marc-Antoine Laporte (QC) Mark Bradbury (NL) Michael Duffy (NL) Regan Lewis (PE)


Dear Friends, We are pleased to share with you many inspiring stories and noteworthy achievements from what has been yet another remarkable year for Easter Seals Canada. The stories provide some insight into the experiences of thousands of children, youth, adults and families across the country whose lives have been positively impacted by the many programs and services provided by Easter Seals Canada and Easter Seals member organizations. Our Access 2 Card Program, aimed at reducing social isolation among people with disabilities by increasing access to cultural and recreational venues, experienced steady growth this year as we processed more than 15,000 new membership cards. Easter Seals Canada continues to advocate and provide leadership on accessibility issues. We were involved in consultations on the Federal government’s new national accessibility legislation, Bill C-21, which intends to “identify, remove and prevent” accessibility barriers and bring about greater inclusion for those living with disabilities. We remain resolved in achieving our vision, mission and goals with financial responsibility and respect for donors in mind. We finished the year with a modest surplus, positioning the organization to take on new challenges and opportunities in the future. As we look to the year ahead, we are intent on increasing public awareness of Easter Seals and the vital work we do in communities from coast to coast. We will also be embarking on the creation of a new strategic plan that will bring the organization towards its centennial anniversary in 2022. These accomplishments stem from the support and commitment of many stakeholders, and we are privileged to be in wonderful company. Our sincere gratitude to donors and partners whose contributions make our work possible. We also warmly thank and acknowledge our Board of Directors and the many tireless staff and volunteers across the country for their dedication in making a positive, meaningful and lasting difference in the lives of people who are living with disabilities.

Stories from across the country From Acorns to Oaks Easter Seals British Columbia & Yukon Every summer, more than 6,000 children, youth, and adults who are living with disabilities attend one of Easter Seals’ accessible summer camps across the country. These often lifechanging summer camps provide participants with opportunities to enjoy many typical fun summer camp experiences and take on new ones that they may not have had the chance to do before. Camps help participants build their skills, confidence, and life-long friendships; and empower them to see their talents and abilities in new and exciting ways.

Weighing only two pounds and ten ounces, Marco Pasqua was born three months premature in 1985. He was soon diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and began his early childhood both shaped and defined by his wheelchair. Little did Marco know when he was greeted at Easter Seals Camp in British Columbia for the first time at the age of five, his experience at Camp would set the path for his future. At Easter Seals camp, Marco wasn’t the only one with a disability but more importantly, he wasn’t defined by his wheelchair. Instead, it was a place where he was encouraged to push himself beyond his idea of ‘disability’ and learn to adapt the world around his abilities. Marco spent the next ten summers at camp swimming, canoeing, playing wheelchair basketball and performing in talent shows, as well as developing his skills, confidence and a sense of independence. He also made friendships that extended beyond the weeks at camp and gave him a feeling of understanding and community that he hadn’t found elsewhere. Today, Marco says that Easter Seals Camps influenced his passion for inclusivity and helping others. He uses the values taught at Camp about overcoming hurdles and fulfilling your dreams to propel his life and career.

“Being around other kids like me made me feel like I wasn’t alone. Everyone was encouraged to take pride in and use their abilities to the fullest.” Marco Pasqua

Marco now works as an advocate for inclusivity and is an active spokesperson for numerous disability organizations across Canada. The confidence and passion for life that he started developing at Camp at age five has been his guiding force throughout his career.


When Actions Speak Louder Than Words Easter Seals Saskatchewan

(Above): Michelle Regehr may use a device to help her to communicate but there’s no mistaking her radiant personality, which shines through in her wide and beautiful smile.

At six months old, Michelle Regehr was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and faced challenges in muscle control and fine motor skills development, which ultimately affected her ability to walk and talk. Thanks to an adapted communication device Michelle acquired through the help of a team of supports including Easter Seals, those challenges do not hold her back. She’s able to communicate, remain independent and live a full, rewarding life. “When she was able to turn on her television for the first time, you can’t imagine the emotions. I mean, we all just take for granted that anybody can turn on a T.V. She was all of a sudden in charge of her own environment for the first time,” said her father, Al. Michelle has been accessing Adaptive Technology services offered by Easter Seals Saskatchewan since 1977. At that time, she was using a head pointer and a sheet of symbols to communicate. Fast forward to today where she’s using one of the most advanced and innovative devices in the country. A small grey dot placed on Michelle’s forehead operates an infra-red sensor connected to her device and allows her to communicate with the world around her. Aside from letting her select words, phrases and emotions to


Assistive and adaptive technologies such as mobility equipment and communication devices, as well as home modifications such as ramps, elevators and ceiling track systems, enable individuals living with disabilities to maximize their abilities, exercise their independence, communicate and actively take part in their communities. Each year, thousands of people across the country benefit from the assistive equipment and adaptive technology supports provided by Easter Seals.

share, the device also allows her to control aspects of her external environment, including her television, fan, lamp, and depending on the season, her Christmas tree! Michelle’s communication device has enabled her to do so much! She’s now able to stay connected with extended family, express herself, exercise her independence, and further integrate into the community. She is one of thousands of people who are living with disabilities who benefit from the ongoing support, expertise and training provided through Easter Seals’ adaptive technology services.

“It’s done unbelievable things for her self-worth, confidence and her ability to communicate with family, medical staff and the community.” Al Regehr, Michelle’s father

Running Towards the Roar Easter Seals Alberta For many bright individuals who are living with disabilities, the ever-increasing cost of postsecondary education can present a huge barrier that stands in the path of their success and aspirations. Along with help to cover the cost of expenses such as tuition fees and textbooks, scholarships and bursaries from Easter Seals also help cover added expenses that are unique to those living with disabilities: specialized equipment, technologies, and supports that are required to make learning and success possible.

Twenty two-year-old Shailynn Taylor has always dreamed of becoming a lawyer so as to champion the human rights of people living with disabilities. She is presently a fourthyear student at Mount Royal University in Calgary where she’s enrolled in a Bachelor of Criminal Justice degree program. She’s tenacious, driven, and has overcome many obstacles and barriers to be where she is today.

She remains focused on her goals. “I can honestly say I would not have been able to continue with my education if it hadn’t been for the generous [Phyllis Davidson Easter Seals Scholarship] I received from Easter Seals Alberta. The scholarship allowed me to focus on my health and my studies instead of the stress of finances and how I would afford not only school, but also the additional expenses my disease leads to as well. Expenses like a $150 wheelchair repair or a $1000 new part for the only vehicle I can be transported in. My family would often find themselves scraping together the money required to keep me moving forward. This scholarship not only relieves my stress but my family’s as well, and we will forever be grateful to Easter Seals for making this life I love so much possible… Despite living with such an ugly disease, my life is so beautiful.”

When she was just eighteen months old, Shailynn was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), a rare degenerative genetic disease—similar to ALS—that occurs in infants and young children. Doctors did not expect her to live past 12 years old as SMA has no known cure and is often fatal. Despite the diagnosis, Shailynn continues to defy expectations. She says, “I grew up in a happy home with countless opportunities and lots of hope for what my future would entail; always pushing the short life expectancy I’d been given to the side.” She requires assistance with daily activities which most Canadians take for granted—such as getting in and out of bed, getting dressed, cooking and cleaning—but has never allowed the disease to define her. Shailynn says defiantly, “I never saw myself as disabled and rarely felt there was something that I couldn’t do.”

“...I would not have been able to continue with my education if it hadn’t been for the generous scholarship I received from Easter Seals...” Shailynn Taylor


New Horizons, New Possibilities Easter Seals Newfoundland & Labrador According to statistics and studies, many adults who are living with disabilities face multiple barriers and challenges in securing employment. Easter Seals provides employment services and skills training, and on-the-job learning opportunities through social enterprise initiatives that assist adults in developing valuable and transferrable workplace skills which they can utilize to secure meaningful and gainful employment in a number of different industries and in their career of choice.

Kyle Kearney joined the Horizons Work Experience Program offered by Easter Seals Newfoundland & Labrador in August 2017 with the goal of securing his first ever job. He wanted to gain employability skills, learn about professional dynamics and meet friends, all while completing his university degree. “When I first started the Horizons Program I must admit I really didn’t know what to expect,” says Kyle. “From day one, however, I knew it would be life changing, and an opportunity to meet new people and make friends. There were so many things I learned and I met so many wonderful people throughout the program that have helped me both in the workplace and everyday life. Even though I have a formal education, I don’t think I had enough “street smarts ” or social skills to make it in the working world. This program gave me that and more; from first aid training to learning how to better budget both my time and money.” “One of my favorite activities that will stay with me for the rest of my life was the invaluable experience I gained through the mock interview process. Volunteers from the St John’s Board of Trade came to help with our skills training session, to better prepare us for questions that could be asked during an interview and help us with the interpersonal skills that are needed while at work.”


Kyle made great progress throughout his time in the program, and through a lot of hard work, patience and perseverance, he secured a full-time, permanent position in his field with a local business. He graduated from Horizons in March 2018, and has not let up since. His colleagues praise his work ethic and positive attitude, and we at Easter Seals are incredibly proud of Kyle and all of his success. “All of the training and support from the coordinators and staff who help run the Horizons Program was key…[they helped me secure] a work term which has now become a full-time job. This is where I use not only what I have learned from my formal education, but also the lessons and skills I was taught throughout the program, and I will always be truly grateful for that.”

“There were so many things I learned and I met so many wonderful people throughout the program that have helped me both in the workplace and everyday life.” Kyle Kearney

National events and activities The Drop Zone The Drop Zone is Easter Seals’ annual, signature fundraising event. Each year, thousands of superheroes take part in this knee-shaking, heart-pounding, adrenaline-pumping adventure that encourages ordinary Canadians to get out of their comfort zone and face their fears by rappelling from the top of a towering high-rise building—all in support of fellow Canadians who are living with disabilities.

In 2017, approximately 500 participants took part in Drop Zone events in ten cities across Canada: Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax. The events raised over $997,000 last year to help fund the vital programs and services offered by Easter Seals. For more information about The Drop Zone or to sign-up, visit www.thedropzone.ca.

The Paper Egg Campaign Each spring, retail partners across Canada take part in Easter Seals’ Paper Egg Campaign where they encourage Canadians to make a donation to Easter Seals by purchasing a Paper Egg at store check-out counters. The month-long campaign helps raise funds for Easter Seals while raising awareness about the organization and its mission.

Hundreds of thousands of people from coast-to-coast showed their support for Easter Seals by purchasing a Paper Egg during last year’s campaign. Participating retail locations then put up the signed Paper Eggs on store walls and windows—creating a powerful display of support for Canadians who are living with disabilities. This past year, the campaign raised more than $500,000 for Easter Seals.

Access 2 Card Program The award-winning Access 2 Card program is a partnership between Easter Seals Canada and hundreds of entertainment, cultural, recreational and other venues across Canada. It is aimed at increasing access and inclusivity for individuals who are living with permanent disabilities—by waiving the admission costs to these venues for their support worker.

Since launching in 2004, the Access 2 Card program has emerged as a national leader in promoting social inclusion and opportunities for the disability community. There are presently over 57,000 active card holders across the country. In the past year, approximately 300 new Access 2 cards were issued each week. For more information about the Access 2 Card program, visit www.access2card.ca. 9

Spotlight on our National Partners Friends of We Care Friends of We Care—made up of a network of over 80 companies in the Food Service and Hospitality industries— is one of Easter Seals Canada’s largest National Partner. Each year, Friends of We Care raises over $1 million through various special events and donations to help send kids who are living with disabilities to Easter Seals’ accessible summer camps. The organization and its members are passionate in their goal to help children and youth who are living with disabilities succeed. In 2017, Friends of We Care raised over $1.3 million for Easter Seals, making it possible for over 630 kids to attend camp, where they’re then empowered to build their skills and confidence, and forge life-long friendships and memories.

“...We are concerned with more than real estate; we are dedicated to improving the communities that our customers, and System members, call home. Easter Seals is our charity of choice, and our System members have contributed $114 million globally in support of families living with disabilities.”

CENTURY 21 Canada CENTURY 21 Canada is one of Easter Seals’ longest-standing National Partners.

Amway Canada Amway Canada has been a national partner of Easter Seals for many years. In 2017, Amway continued to maintain its support of Easter Seals as the National Hero Sponsor for the Drop Zone events across the country yet again. Amway’s unwavering commitment also extends to its employees and Amway Independent Business Operators (IBOs) who also participate in Drop Zone events and help to raise donations and awareness for Easter Seals.

Booster Juice Booster Juice has been a national partner and sponsor of Easter Seals’ annual Paper Egg campaign since 2010 and has helped raised approximately $500,000 in donations to support vital programs and services across the country. In the 2018 Paper Egg campaign alone, Booster Juice customers, franchise owners, stores and national corporate office rallied together to raise $60,000 for Easter Seals—one of the highest amounts that Booster Juice has raised annually since it began the partnership with Easter Seals.

Breakaway Experiences Breakaway Experiences came on board as a national partner and sponsor of the Drop Zone events in 2016. Each year, Breakaway Experiences contributes gift certificates as well as a generous National Grand Prize travel package as incentives for participants; to spur and motivate them to reach even greater heights in their fundraising for Easter Seals while bracing themselves and taking on the knee-shaking challenge and check off yet another item in their bucket list. 11
