Impact of a Multipronged Approach to Inclusion: Having All Partners on Side
Timmons, Vianne
International Journal of Inclusive Education, v10 n4-5 p469-480 Jul 2006
Canada is a large multicultural country with ten provinces and two territories. Education is a provincial responsibility and therefore there is no federal office of education. This results in varied approaches to practice. The majority of the provinces in Canada have educational policies that support inclusive education practices. Prince Edward Island is the smallest province in the poorest region in Canada. It has been implementing inclusive education practices for over a decade and has seen significant success. This paper presents the situation in Canada and highlights the success of one province. One significant reason the province has been successful in implementing inclusive education practices has been the commitment of many partners, the province, schools, university and community.
