About Us

The Breaking the ICE Canada conference is an event created by and for individuals who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) and their families.

This conference is the first event of its kind in Canada and was designed to bring the community of people who use AAC together to share ideas, learn from each other, and create new friendships.

Breaking the ICE Canada was inspired by the Pittsburgh Employment Conference a consumer centred conference for augmented communicators. It has proven itself to be a powerful force for change and a source of empowerment for an often marginalized group.

The Breaking the ICE conference committee includes individuals who use AAC, members of March of Dimes Canada, and clinicians from Ontario's AAC centres.

The committee is made up of various subcommittees and includes the following dedicated individuals:

Alan Sunisloe                Donna Mackay           
Gemma Woticky Gordana Skrba
Gerry Schram Nora Rothschild
Iain Wallace Roslyn Irvine
Laurel Robinson Nola Millin
Alexis Dickson Verna Chan
Eva Miodonski Tracy Shepherd
