Inclusion Canada: Annual Feedback from People with Intellectual Disabilities and Families


We want to hear from you about how we're doing! 


Each year Inclusion Canada asks people with an intellectual disability and their families and allies for feedback on our national work. We appreciate your thoughts on how you feel we are advancing inclusion for people with an intellectual disability and their families. Your honest answers allow us to flag important opportunities for growth and improvement in the areas that matter to you. 


The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete, and there is an opportunity at the end of the survey to be entered to win an Inclusion Canada prize package. 


We hope you can take a few minutes to share your thoughts! The survey will be open until June 7th 2024.
