Sports journalist and frequent CSA contributor Ryan Cowley has been featured in a CBC article and interviewed for CBC radio about his job covering sports as a person who stutters.

Good news for the Canadian Maritimes! There are now expanded resources for people who stutter in Eastern Canada, including an annual conference event to be held on November 2. The Newfoundland conference will be held in Mount Pearl by the Newfoundland and Labrador Stuttering Association (NLSA).
On behalf of the CSA Board, Advisory Board and Volunteers, I’d like to wish you and your families a very Happy, Healthy and Abundant NEW YEAR 2019!
To begin with, we would like to thank those of you who have donated to the CSA in 2018 either financially or with your valuable time. Your donations help us to further our mission and vision and to get started with new initiatives.
The University of Ottawa Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology program is looking for people who stutter to participate in a research project. Graduate students Cynthia Rochon and Shannel Champion will be getting a first-hand account from people who stutter about their communication experiences.
The methodology they will be using is called "Photovoice" in which individuals take pictures to best represent experiences with certain situations. Ottawa SLP Caroline Bredeson is a co-supervisor on the project.
