Supporting Indigenous Students in their Transition – Aboriginal Post-Secondary Information Program
In this webinar, we welcome APSIP – the Aboriginal Post-Secondary Information Program – for an informative session about accessibility and other student support services available at colleges, universities, and polytechnics across Ontario and Quebec. We will connect with Indigenous Representatives to learn how they support students through their educational journey and ensure their academic environment is accessible, welcoming, and a positive learning experience. We will discuss the many services accessibility offers to support students with hearing impairment, learning disability, brain injury, blind or low vision, mental health, and more.
