Phase III consisted of one follow-up workshop on June 20, 2018. The workshop was hosted in Vancouver, with access to participation from several communities across British Columbia via Telehealth. Provincial Language Services staff reported on what was heard in the Phase II engagements and shared a draft model proposal for future service delivery. Participants were asked to provide input into the draft proposal.
Twenty-two people participated:
- Twelve Deaf and Hard of Hearing persons and three Deaf-Blind participants in Vancouver.
- Two participants in Kelowna (one Deaf and one family member of a Deaf person).
- Four participants in Prince George (three Deaf persons and one parent of a Deaf child).
- One Deaf participant from the Greater Vancouver area followed the workshop via live stream.
Provincial Language Services also established a Telehealth connection with the location in Victoria, and a Telehealth connection was made available for Terrace, but no participants attended from those locations.
Phase III also included receiving post-workshop input into the information shared about the proposed Service Delivery Framework.
