Cynthia Benoit

Interpreter

Cynthia Benoit completed her Master of Science in Urban Studies at the Institut national de recherche scientifique - Centre Urbanisation Culture Société. Her thesis examined the accessibility of Deaf services through five dimensions : spatial accessibility, accommodation, affordability, availability, and acceptability. She also holds a Bachelor of science in Geography with a concentration in Human Geography from the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM).

Cynthia has been actively involved in various academic and community initiatives in Canada and the United States for almost 10 years. Among other things, her involvement led her to co-found Groupe BWB, an award-winning Deaf-owned, Deaf-centered social enterprise focused on raising awareness about the systemic discrimination of Deaf citizens. She has also received several awards, including the annual Humanities Change the World (Les sciences humaines changent le monde) Award for graduates of UQAM’s Social Sciences programs. Cynthia has worked as a college instructor and specializes in Deaf human rights and accessibility.
It was a pleasure for her to collaborate with Véro to ensure quality ASL translation, for which she invited Jordan Sangalang to join this initiative to help with ASL translation and filming.
