Reducing Barriers to Inclusive Access Project Working Group (E)

Track: Steering Innovation

The Reducing Barriers to Inclusive Access Project Working Group (PWG) is a pan-Canadian group that has been working to develop a greater understanding of how Canada’s colleges and institutes can facilitate pathways to knowledge, education and credentials. This working group was designed to create and develop an experimental pilot that would be focused on creating greater access to education for the country’s racialized and equity-seeking groups. The group is co-creating 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. This presentation will focus on highlighting this new initiative, the different types of projects that will be showcased on the online portal and the ways in which other colleges and institutes in Canada can be involved.
