High School Transition
AQEIPS (Association québécoise des étudiants ayants des incapacités au post-secondaire)
AQEIPS was created and launched by a group of Quebec students with
disabilities in 1991, to ensure students with disabilities in the province
have access to post-secondary education without restriction. It also advocates
for students with disabilities’ right to access fully integrated services
within the community.
AQEIPS is NEADS’ Quebec sister organization, and the two associations
maintain close links. The Quebec Representative of the NEADS board of
directors attends AQEIPS board meetings and NEADS ensures that the
Quebec group has a seat at its meetings.
AQEIPS educates the public on the experiences and needs of people
with disabilities through activities such as meetings, seminars and
research projects. It also encourages representation of students with
disabilities through the creation of disabled students’ organizations in
post-secondary institutions throughout Quebec. AQEIPS has a board of
directors with members representing different regions of the province.
