February 26, 2015. Calgary, AB. The Canadian Down Syndrome Society (CDSS) celebrates the inclusion of Joey Moss in this year’s Alberta Sports Hall of Fame Inductee roster.

CDSS congratulates this inspirational man on his continued achievements in the Albertan sports landscape. Joey teaches all Canadians to “See the Ability!” every time he steps on the ice to lead the national anthem, and his contributions behind the scenes with the Edmonton Oilers and Edmonton Eskimos.

“Joey’s accomplishments are an example of the incredible things people with Down syndrome can do in their communities, if they’re just given a chance and included,” said Kirk Crowther, Executive Director of the Canadian Down Syndrome Society. “We’re proud to have Joey represent us and the entire Down syndrome community.”

Joey will be joining CDSS as this year’s Conference Ambassador at the Canadian Down Syndrome Conference, this May 15 to 17 in Edmonton. Joey's accomplishments make him the perfect representative for Edmonton. We are excited to have him join us for the weekend and share his gifts and talents with our delegates.

Spencer West

The Canadian Down Syndrome Society is proud to announce Spencer West, activist, author, and renowned inspirational speaker will be joining us as Keynote speaker at the 2015 Canadian Down Syndrome Conference in Edmonton. The Canadian Down Syndrome Conference celebrates people with Down syndrome, their families, and professionals in the Down syndrome community.

Inspirational and charismatic, Spencer West is candid about the struggles he overcame after losing his legs at the age of five. Whether headlining corporate conferences, filling stadiums, or leading volunteer excursions for youth and adults in Kenya, Ghana and India, Spencer’s words have encouraged millions to stand up to difficult times, face challenges, embrace change, and learn the tangible skills each one of us can use to redefine what is possible both for organizations and individuals.

His many accomplishments, played out on the global stage, led him to teach others to redefine what is possible in their own lives.

Spencer’s inspirational life story will help us kick off our great conference weekend. More exciting announcements regarding speakers, registration, and panels will be made at www.downsyndromeconference.ca soon!

We look forwarding to welcoming all of you to the Canadian Down Syndrome Conference, May 15 to 17, 2015 in Edmonton!
