Perspective Newsletter for RCD Donors
Since 2013 with the publication of our first Perspective Newsletter, it has been published twice per year with a goal of letting donors know how their monetary donations are being put to use. RCD Participant achievements will be highlighted along with upcoming events everyone can be involved in. The newsletter will also be used as an opportunity for you to get to know RCD staff a little more. It can be downloaded here. Take a look!

RCD Newsletter (Past)
The RCD has paused sending newsletter to members since 2019, instead we use email communication through MailChimp as our channel of member communciation.
Our Newsletter was usually issued every two months, mostly via email and some paper distribution. In 2015 and 2016 we followed the theme of “Member First” and in 2017 we adopted the slogan “RCD In Action”. For the year 2018, the RCD was “Moving Forward”, anticipating lots of changes that year and beyond. We were happy to establish an effective way of communicating with our members, friends and supporters, on RCD activities, events, project and all related endeavours.
2019 - RCD Launch Into a New Era
2018 - RCD Moving Forward

Resources for Career Development Project Final Report
The RCD administered the ESDC’s Opportunities Fund Community Coordinator Agreement via its project – “Resource for Career Development” from April 2014 to March 2015. The RCD had delivered services to people with disabilities by giving them the opportunity to benefit from interventions, enabling them to develop their skills and employability in order to prepare them to obtain and keep employment.
The final report outlines the best practices, outcomes, performance measures, impacts, and identified gaps that are learned and observed, or arising during implementation of the project.

Multicultural Service and Delivery Model
In 2005-6, the RCD conducted a research project to develop a “Multicultural Service and Delivery Model” with a purpose to provide a framework that will assist organizations to reach people with disabilities within the Multicultural Community. The project was co-sponsored by the Department of Social Development, Office for Disability Issues and Canada Heritage.
