Communication Disabilities Access Canada (CDAC) has announced a new, national, non-profit organization that will be taking over CDAC’s communication access to justice program.  
 
Communication Access to Justice (CAJust) will build on CDAC’s past work to train communication intermediaries (CIs) and to promote communication access to police, legal and justice services for victims, witnesses and accused persons who have disabilities that affect speech, language and communication. This initiative aligns with CDAC’s mission to facilitate organizations to provide communication accessibility supports for people with communication disabilities. CDAC is currently supporting CAJust with start-up funding as well as providing input and access to online trainings, database and resources.  
 
Caitlin Buchel, an SAC member, has been selected to serve as the Executive Director of CAJust. Please direct inquiries to Caitlin at caitlinbuchel@cajust.ca.
