The Harmonize for Speech Barbershop
Quartet performs at the 2018 CSA Conference Once again, the Canadian Stuttering Association is honoured and grateful to be assisted with a $2,000 grant from Harmonize for Speech, a privately-funded organization in Ontario that supports speech related projects and initiatives. These funds will go towards producing the annual conference, which takes place October 19, 2019.
The 2019 Newfoundland and Labrador Stuttering Association conference will be taking place Saturday, November 2. Check out their new website here! Whether you are a person who stutters, a family member or friend of a PWS, of a speech-language pathologist, don't forget about this important event.
The Speech Fluency Lab, University of Toronto, is currently conducting a study of movement behaviour in children and adults who do and do not stutter. Through this research, they aim to better understand the nature of stuttering in both children and adults, and ultimately improve treatment.
ISTAR is sponsoring a free screening of "When I Stutter" Sunday, June 23rd, at 2:00 at the Globe theatre in Calgary. Calgary CSA support group leaders Rhea, Achalla and Ana will also be in attendance, so that would be a great opportunity for people to meet them!

Meetings will take place monthly from the comfort of your own home. No need to pay for parking or a babysitter! Meet other people and share stories in a safe non-judgemental environment.
