Communications Team Announcement

As DAWN Canada culminates its 35th year in service and in hope, we are thrilled to be announcing some big changes within the communications team! 

Avery Burrow, the former Communications Officer, who joined DAWN in 2020 as an event coordinator for National AccessAbility Week will be stepping into the role of Senior Communications Coordinator following a year of executing exciting communications campaigns despite the global pandemic. She is joined by Mackenzie Casalino as the new Communications Coordinator. 

Mackenzie Casalino is a trained journalist who has worked in communities such as Ottawa, North Bay, and Halifax. They have participated with non-governmental organizations in Canada and abroad that work with environmental conservation, youth and women empowerment.  

Mackenzie is excited to join the DAWN team and looks forward to working on empowering people living with disabilities and Deaf women, girls and non-binary folk.  

DAWN is grateful for this new chapter for the communications team and the growth within the entire organization that this news signals.
