National Report Card on Inclusion

In November 2007, CACL issued a limited edition of the 2007 National Report Card on Inclusion of Canadians with Intellectual Disabilities. The report card illustrates that despite the progress that has been made in the last 50 years, many Canadians with intellectual disabilities and their families continue to face exclusion, isolation and poverty.

In November 2008, a more comprehensive National Report Card addressing all ten CACL priority areas was released at our 50th Anniversary Conference.

The 2009 Report was released on December 3rd, 2009, on International Disability Day.  It covers three main objectives in CACL’s 10-year Agenda:  ending poverty, closing institutions, and securing labour force/employment access.

The 2010 Report was released December 3rd, 2010 on International Disability Day. The 2010 National Report Card on Inclusion explores how Canada is doing in the areas of inclusive education, Disability Supports and Family Supports. The report card highlights these three areas as top priorities for changing the status of Canadians with intellectual disabilities and their families.

CACL’s 2011 National Report Card on Inclusion focuses on how Canada is doing in the areas of Securing Child Rights and Needed Supports, and Establishing Safe and Inclusive Communities. These are two of the 10 objectives in CACL’s Vision 2020 agenda – an agenda adopted by CACL to assist Canadians and governments in building a more inclusive Canada.

The purpose of this National Report Card on Inclusion is to provide a mechanism to comment on and track the progress we are making as a country on the attainment of these objectives. It is not intended to be a comprehensive analysis of every aspect of Canadian society, but rather to provide for our collective consideration a number of indicators in each area that demonstrate both our accomplishments and ongoing challenges.
