Canadian Cultural Society of the Deaf Archives

 Welcome to the archives of the Canadian Cultural Society of the Deaf

Our mandate is to acquire, preserve, and promote our cultural heritage.

We have inherited and maintain documentation of Deaf culture that is rich with the struggles and triumphs of Deaf Life, artifacts, traditions, and storytelling in sign language.  The legacy that we inherit from our past helps us make sense of the present, and is a gift for future generations to come.   We identify with who we are, Deaf, and promote respect for sign language and a diverse culture that is creative and able.
