Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) has launched its “Indigenous Education Protocol for Colleges and Institutes.” The Protocol highlights 7 principles that CICan has identified as being essential to meeting Indigenous peoples’ learning needs and to support self-determination and socio-economic development of Indigenous communities:

1. Commit to making Indigenous education a priority.

2. Ensure governance structures recognize and respect Indigenous peoples.

3. Implement intellectual and cultural traditions of Indigenous peoples through curriculum and learning approaches relevant to learners and communities.

4. Support students and employees to increase understanding and reciprocity among Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.

5. Commit to increasing the number of Indigenous employees with ongoing appointments throughout the institution, including Indigenous senior administrators.

6. Establish Indigenous-centred holistic services and learning environments for learner success.

7. Build relationships and be accountable to Indigenous communities in support of self-determination through education, training and applied research.

For more information, the news release can be found at the CICan website.

It is our pleasure to announce that the Planat in Action: Accessibility Assessment of UBC Competition and Accommodation Venues for the Special Olympics Canada 2014 Summer Games report is available in cIRcle, UBC’s Digital Repository!

Serving as the host venue from July 8-12, 2014, UBC’s Vancouver campus proudly welcomed 1,300 athletes with intellectual disabilities for the Special Olympics Canada 2014 Summer Games. Over 350 students, staff and faculty from the UBC community signed up for volunteer opportunities for the Games.

These opportunities ranged from “UBC varsity athletes [who] volunteered at training camps and formed a team with Special Olympics BC athletes at the annual Storm the Wall student recreation event” to “[m]ore than 100 students [being] involved in projects related to the Games such as creating maps, reducing waste, sourcing local food, and eliminating the need for bottled water” and much more.

This report provides a summary of each venue used during the Games along with recommendations. It is based on information and photo gathering on current accessibility and inclusive features at venues and public spaces used during the Games.
