The Canadian Association for Community Living, a Canada-wide association of family members and others, which works on behalf of persons of all ages who have an intellectual disability, is issuing a call for nominations for the National Inclusive Education Awards.
The awards are presented to an individual or team who has made a positive and significant contribution to inclusive education within the early learning, public school system and in post-secondary schools in their province or territory. The awards presentations are part of the activities planned for National Inclusive Education Month, which will be held in February 2018.
Inclusive education is about how we develop and design our learning environments – schools, classrooms, programs and activities – so that all students learn and participate together. It is based on the firm belief, and on real experience, that all students have value and can best learn in regular classrooms alongside students their own age. Inclusion also means that our schools help develop positive relationships and mutual respect between all students.
The National Inclusive Education Award recipients are selected by Associations for Community Living in each province or territory. The NB Association for Community Living awards committee will select winners (Francophone and Anglophone) from the province of New Brunswick.
Nomination forms must be submitted to the NB Association for Community Living in care of Rebecca Pilson no later than December 15th, 2017, at 5:00PM.
For more information about the awards, contact Rebecca at the New Brunswick Association for Community Living at 1-866-622-2548 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
