Research Center for the Inclusion of People with Disabilities

Cégep du Vieux Montréal and Dawson College

CRISPESH contributes to the inclusion of disabled persons in Québec society by supporting organizations in the advancement of knowledge and the development and promotion of innovative social practices.

Disability occurs at the points of interaction between a person and his environment. It is our collective responsibility to remove barriers to inclusion in education, and in professional and social inclusion.

What can CRISPESH do for you

Four areas of activity at the provincial, national and international levels: applied research in social innovation, advice service, customized training and knowledge transfer.

Greater added value for CRISPESH clients: improving their practices towards a more inclusive environment for people with disabilities.

Clientele: schools, private companies and First Nations.
