Inclusive Post-Secondary Education in Canada: Transition to Somewhere for Students with Intellectual Disabilities

Inclusive Education is not a new concept in Canada, however in contrast to the dominant approach to post-secondary disability access that narrowly focuses on the legal obligation to accommodate student learning, we consider Inclusive Post-secondary Education (IPSE) for students with intellectual disabilities within a broader framework of inclusive citizenry. IPSE programs in Canada originated in the province of Alberta and have enjoyed significant leadership from within the Canadian post-secondary and not-for-profit sectors. An overview of the principles and practices of IPSE programs is provided as well as details about the multiple program options available across Canada.
