Last month, the first Canadian Restaurant, Signs, which is mostly staffed with deaf waiters and waitresses, opened its doors for diners from all walks of life. Located on Yonge and Wellesley intersection in Downtown Toronto, they are mostly staffed by deaf servers. This means that your order will now fall on deaf ears, only it will be served right next to you in no time. Diners will have to make the order using sign language on the menu or on the big images on the walls. But they were there not just for what’s going to be on the plate but to support this laudable initiative of the restaurant management.

The owner Anjan Manikumar, although not deaf, knows sign language and this attempt to capacitate one of the most vulnerable sectors of the society is, hands down, worth praising. They have once been forfeited with the chance and hope to work in a business like this but they now can. The deaf community has really seen inspiration in this rare opportunity to show their potential. It will enable them to finally find a place where they will be more at ease with the only language they know.
In an interview with CBC, one server at Signs, Mehdi Safavi, expressed his appreciation for the opportunity to work in an environment where deaf people are respected. This is indeed an inspiration of the global deaf communities to learn their officially-recognized American Sign Language. Now, these people will have more reason to go to school and avail with the special education offered in many public educational institutions across the globe.
SIGNS is, hands down, one of the most uniquely themed restaurant in the world. They are inviting everyone to come for the experience and at the same time, stay there for the high quality contemporary menu that they offer. It is also a great place for the deaf community to see and share their joys and experiences. The InsideBoxMag wishes to be there one day to experience the hospitality of our deaf brothers and sisters. We hope that you will share this news by clicking any or all of the buttons below.
