Join your community in an open and inclusive dialogue to discover the barriers and possibilities for accessible education in BC. 

Do you feel you have equitable access to Accessible Education in British Columbia? 

Join us on Friday, November 18th, 2022 from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM PT for this accessible and informative online event on accessible education in British Columbia. 

Presented by the  Disability Foundation  and co-hosted by the  ConnecTra Society, this next Accessible Community Forum aims to cultivate a conversation between various organizations and our community of people living with disabilities.  

Accessible education is a frequent topic of discussion in our outreach, previous Accessible Community Forums, and affiliated societies’ regular programming. Through our survey and forum, we will build on our current knowledge and broaden our collective understanding of your needs and how best to accommodate them.  

With one in five Canadians (and approximately 15% of British Columbians) living with one or more disabilities, it is incredibly important that education is accessible to all.  

Help us explore possible solutions and resources to bridge the gap between the education opportunities you currently experience, and what it could become. This is an open, honest, and inclusive dialogue between a panel of organizational representatives and our beautiful province’s diverse disability community.  

Start the conversation by taking the Accessible Education in BC Survey by Sunday, November 13th at 11:59 PM. Click here to take the survey.

You are the expert of your experience. Be heard. 

If you require any assistance to take the survey, register, or attend this event – please email us at info@connectra.org. Closed captioning will be available.
