CSA Vision Statement
To be seen as a national leader in building a connected network of support and awareness for people who stutter throughout Canada.
The Canadian Stuttering Association is run entirely by the passion, energy and commitment of volunteers, most of whom are people who stutter. Please join today! People who stutter, parents, speech language pathologists as well as support groups and treatment centres can be members.
In April of 2017 David Stones, former CSA Board Member, current Advisory Board Member and seasoned Strategic Planner, with the help of his business associate Gail Tolley, led the CSA Board Directors in an all day strategic planning session with the purpose of developing a Strategic Plan for the CSA. Together we analyzed the meaning and value of our existence as an association, reviewed some of the hopes and dreams that we had suggested for the CSA over the next 5 years, and determined how we could possibly turn those into actual results.
