Annual General Meeting

Author Michael Jaques

You are invited to attend the 2024 Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, June 25th 2024 at 6:00 p.m.

This special event will be held in Trinity St. Andrews United Church, 291 Plaunt Street, Renfrew, Ontario.

Our guest speaker is Michael Jacques, a public speaker and activist, who in 2018 wrote and self-published Can’t Read, Can’t Write, Here’s My Book using speech-to-text technology. In 2020, he released a children’s book that he co-authored with Heather Gale titled, I Belong: Can I Play?

At a young age, Michael was diagnosed with autism and an intellectual disability. Never one to shy away from obstacles, Michael looks for opportunities to inspire and educate people on diversity and inclusion.

His story demonstrates the empowerment that comes from being comfortable in your own skin, knowing your strengths, valuing relationships, and giving back to your community. Michael gives back by donating partial proceeds of his book sales to Special Olympics Canada and Community Living, two organizations doing great work in these areas.
