Our mission is to ensure equitable access to education for students with disabilities and complex learners in British Columbia. Our vision is a just and equitable education system across the lifespan.
This is achieved through supporting families, sharing information, providing webinars, workshops, and seminars on topics regarding children’s disabilities and social inclusion to families, allies, professionals and students, providing community and systems engagement and awareness, and other activities to promote equitable access to education and inclusion for all.
Education is a colonial project, designed to exclude, and to sever Indigenous children and youth from their language and culture. We are committed to enacting and pushing for enactment of the calls to action from the National Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
We recognize that systemic racism, ableism, other forms of discrimination, socioeconomic disparities and educational inequities have and continue to disproportionately harm the most systemically oppressed communities. We seek to address these historic inequities in how we work with each other, and those we serve. We know that we also need to hold systems to account for the same work if we want our education system to be more equitable and accessible to all, students, staff and families. We want everyone to be heard, valued, respected and to feel a sense of belonging. We want them to not just survive but to thrive and be empowered to achieve their full potential.
