Reducing Barriers to Inclusive Access to Education

The Reducing Barriers to Inclusive Access Project Working Group (PWG) is a pan-Canadian group that has co-created a joint project to share initiatives that are reducing barriers to inclusive access on campus and in the community. By sharing information on initiatives that are reducing barriers to inclusive access across Canada on a web-based platform, the group hopes that this will help raise awareness of the resources, initiatives and support available to dismantle the barriers that other individuals and/or groups encounter.
