The Disability Justice Network of Ontario (DJNO) is thrilled to announce that we have been accepted for a Partnership Engage Grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), in support of our research project in partnership with Dr. Ameil Joseph from the McMaster University School of Social Work.
Our research will use Canadian census data to complete an intersectional analysis of the unique socioeconomic impacts on disabled youth across a variety of factors (wealth, education, employment, and housing). This research aims to explore how ableism and ageism intersect to create unique barriers for disabled youth. Our hope is that this research will contribute to an increased understanding of the effects of systemic ableism on youth. This research will also allow DJNO to better target our campaigns and advocacy efforts to meet the needs of disabled youth.
This research project is estimated to take 1-2 years to complete, and will be followed by a public report on our findings.
