Development of an Educational Resource to Assist Not for Profit Organizations in the Formulation and Implementation of Federal Disability Legislation

To ensure the largest impact possible, members of community disability organizations must be involved in the entire process of designing and implementing research. SCI Canada has spearheaded the development of CAIP and FALA, thereby achieving comprehensive input from disability organizations nationwide. Understanding the process of formulating and implementing legislation is a key element for creating important changes in the access and inclusion of Canadian society. Our research will help design an educational resource and evaluate it’s effectiveness in increasing the confidence of partner organizations to become involved in this process. As a whole, our research will contribute to a growing body of evidence that highlights the importance of research being used in practice.
