Deaf Wireless Canada Committee (DWCC) is an ad-hoc committee endorsed by the Canadian Association of the Deaf-Association des Sourds du Canada (CAD-ASC). DWCC was formed because Deaf and Hard of Hearing Canadian consumers have similar concerns with their wireless plans.
The mandate of DWCC is to advocate for fair priced wireless contracts for ASL/LSQ using consumers and to promote the ideal functional equivalency for all Canadian consumers. The committee is seeking in the following points that Wireless Service Providers must offer:
- Fair and uniform wireless data plans for ASL and LSQ users;
- Cost reasonable plans for ASL and LSQ users;
- Transparent and clear advertisement of plans offered; and
- Decreased disparity in disparity of product and service provisions.
