Lorin MacDonald

For over two decades, human rights lawyer Lorin MacDonald has demonstrated her leadership, passion, and commitment to accessibility and inclusion in her volunteer and professional activities, all informed by her experience as a woman living with a severe to profound hearing loss.

Lorin garners much respect for her advocacy work due to her cross-disability approach. The Government of Ontario features Lorin in three videos about accessibility for people with disabilities. The YouTube video "Day in the Life of Lorin" with English and French open captions has received over 5,000 individual views.

Recognized as one of Canada's top voices in accessibility and disability issues, Lorin's approach is grounded in evidence-based research and a desire to challenge communities to be inclusive and accessible. With optimism, she perseveres against unfavourable odds to ensure people with disabilities have an accessible community in which to live. Through education, Lorin continually strives to ensure those who may be unaware of the barriers experienced by individuals with disabilities are equipped with the tools necessary to create inclusive communities for all.

Lorin lives in Toronto and has her own human rights law practice focusing on disability discrimination, particularly as experienced by children.
