Christian Généreux, President, Quebec Association of Post- Secondary Disabled Students (AQEIPS)

Christian Généreux is thirty years old and has cerebral palsy. He is at the end of his Bachelor in Political Science, specializing in the profile analysis of public politics at the Université du Québec à Montréal. In addition, he is extremely involved in the work of associations of people with the disabilities in Quebec as the President of the Quebec Association of Post- Secondary Disabled Students.

Choosing the path of the analysis of public politics, Christian has decided to focus on the full participation of people with disabilities in relation to the function of the Quebec Office For People with Disabilities. His main interest is the education of children with disabilities from 1965 to 1980 in Quebec. Christian plans to pursue a Master's degree in Political Science focusing on the public services available to people who have disabilities affecting oral communication. Since the beginning of his post- secondary studies, he has been interested in the advocacy of Quebec's disabled students. This interest has been influenced by his participation as an executive member of the general student association at his school.

All his work with the Quebec Association of Post- Secondary Disabled Students since 1993, has led Christian to make an effort to ensure that the issues of students with disabilities become more a focus of discussion of Quebec's students' federations.
