Social participation and economic inclusion
At INÉÉI-PSH, we are committed to promoting full social participation and economic inclusion for people with disabilities. We recognize that disability affects people of all ages, genders and ethno-cultural backgrounds, and we strive to respond to this diversity with concrete, inclusive actions.
We firmly believe that inclusion is not limited to physical access or the removal of architectural barriers. It also means ensuring that people with disabilities have equal economic opportunities and can actively participate in all aspects of society. This includes access to employment, education, culture and political participation.
We work closely with communities of people with disabilities to understand their specific needs and to develop strategies that promote their autonomy and economic integration.
By promoting greater understanding and recognition of the abilities and contributions of people with disabilities, we are working towards a more inclusive and just society.
Our mission is to ensure that people with disabilities are not just present, but active and valued players in all areas of life. We are committed to making the social participation and economic inclusion of people with disabilities a tangible and lasting reality.
Citizen action and governance parity
At the heart of our organization is a deep commitment to citizen action and equal governance. We firmly believe that every individual, whatever their abilities, has an essential role to play in society. It was in this spirit that we launched the Comité d'action et formation pour l'égalité des sexes (C.A.F.É.S) project, a pioneering initiative aimed at empowering people with disabilities.
Our approach is founded on the conviction that inclusion and equity are not just ideals to be achieved, but concrete practices that must be integrated into every facet of our work. Through the (C.A.F.É.S) project and our other initiatives, we work tirelessly to build a community where every voice is heard, valued and where every individual has the opportunity to contribute fully to our collective society.
Leadership and empowerment
Project Committee for Action and Training for Gender Equality
Funded by the Canadian Women's Foundation, the Project Committee for Action and Training for Gender Equality is implemented in partnership with INDCP. The project aims to build the capacity of people with disabilities (PWDs) to better access strategic information to participate in the decision-making process, to be better equipped for active participation in inclusive and equal consultation tables, to better prepare for NPO administration, and to sit on a board of directors. The idea is also to have a bank of candidates for future participation on NPO boards.
En faisant cela, nous assurons non seulement une représentation équitable, mais nous enrichissons également la prise de décision par des perspectives diversifiées.
Social and economic inclusion
Having received funding under the Canadian Healthy Communities Fund's call for projects, the INÉÉI-PSH, in collaboration with various partners, including Santropol Roulant and Def Phy Sans limite, carried out an initiative led by people with disabilities, focusing on community action and citizen PairAidance, with a view to improving the autonomy and food security of people in vulnerable situations, particularly people with disabilities.
Pantry Sentries, a project that ran for 30 weeks, had started in November 2021. In collaboration with various partners, including Santropol Roulant and Def Phy Sans limite, the First Nations Human Resources Development Commission of Quebec, we presented an initiative led by people with disabilities (PWD), focused on community action and citizen PairAidance, with a view to improving the autonomy and food security of people in vulnerable situations, particularly PWD.
Promoting universal accessibility
In our quest for a truly inclusive society, we place the promotion of universal accessibility at the heart of our actions. Universal accessibility goes beyond the simple removal of physical barriers. It encompasses the creation of environments, products and services that are accessible and usable by all, without the need for adaptation or specialized design.
We recognize that accessibility is a fundamental right that enables every individual, whatever their ability or situation, to live independently and participate fully in all aspects of life in society.
