2021 is the year for technology to take off, for increased virtual participation, and to overcome the digital leap. With this in mind, the RCD is hosting a new initiative, RCD ShareNet on the RCD YouTube Channel.  The purpose is to share information on disability-related topics with people with disabilities, their support network, and the public in a timely yet sustainable manner.

Starting October 2021, instead of airing two videos a week, we have changed the schedule to posting RCD ShareNet video only on Monday at 1 p.m. They are short broadcasts of around 10 to 20 minutes, on a specific topic. There are four streams of focus – Disability Information, RCD Information, Peer Sharing and ProChat.

NEW - Starting January 2022, RCD will have a new format for the ShareNet broadcast on YouTube, stay tuned for more information. We shall maintain the Monday schedule, but will have a new airing time. Thank you for your attention.
