About the Centre
National Investigators Launch the Canadian Research Centre on Inclusive Education
The Centre for Inclusive Education is evolving, and has become the national headquarters of the Canadian Research Centre on Inclusive Education; connections have been established with a strong group of renowned researchers in inclusive education at universities all across Canada. Although many Canadian scholars are involved in research that is directly related to inclusion, there is no national voice for research in this area at the present time. By researching and disseminating our findings across Canada and around the world, collectively we aim to empower teachers and others with the knowledge they need to be effective with all students, including those with exceptional needs.
Please visit the new National Investigators page for more information on our Team Leaders at universities across the country.
Research team gathers at Congress 2013
Members of the Canadian Research Centre on Inclusive Education gathered on May 27 to set priorities for inclusive education research prior to attending the annual meeting of the Canadian Society for Studies in Education in Fredericton. The Hon. Jody Carr, Minister of Education for the province of New Brunswick visited the group briefly to discuss research related to inclusive education policy and practices in New Brunswick and throughout Canada.
Members of the national team of investigators met just prior to Congress 2013 at the University of Victoria in BC. The Congress is Canada's largest gathering of scholars across disciplines. Organized by the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences, Congress brings together academics, researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners to share findings, refine ideas, and build partnerships that will help shape the Canada of tomorrow.
The researchers met to discuss research in progress, prepare for several presentations being made at the Congress, and to plan for the coming year. Click on the "Research" button and then "Presentations" on this web site to view a list of these and other presentations.
