Post Secondary Education

For many Canadians, attending a university or college to pursue personal interests or career goals is an important option. In recent years, people with developmental disabilities have also begun to seek opportunities to attend post-secondary institutions, along with their non-disabled peers. However, for many labeled people, post-secondary access is limited due to stereotypes and rigid eligibility criteria.

Inclusion BC's work to support access to post-secondary education is guided by our Policy on Post-Secondary Education.

STEPS Forward Inclusive Post Secondary Education Society - The STEPS website is a great resource for parents, educators and students. Created in 2001, STEPS' mandate is to "transform post-secondary education in the province of British Columbia by modelling inclusion for students with intellectual disabilities, starting at UBC (STEPS-Campus) and eventually expanding to other colleges and universities throughout the lower mainland and the rest of the province." A leader in post secondary education in B.C. and in Canada, STEPS Forward is making huge in-roads in advancing inclusive post secondary education.
