We will first present a summary of interview data collected from over 20 First Nations communities across Quebec, regarding the intersection of barriers to inclusion faced by people with disabilities (FNPWD). Second, we will share the training tools created for supporting professionals in employment and education, to promote an Indigenized perspective on social and professional inclusion.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Recognize the emerging understandings of Indigenous experiences of disability
  • Identify barriers and facilitators to finding employment for FNPWD
  • Develop strategies empowering FNPWD in accessing employment and inclusion
