About Us


In recent years, the integration of students with disabilities (SWDs) in colleges has created particular challenges within the college system. The Ministry of Higher Education proposed a new approach to colleges. To meet these challenges, in June 2012, the Ministry created the Centres collégiaux de soutien à l’intégration (CCSIs) and defined their mandates and responsibilities. 

To fulfill their mandate, the CCSIs also participate in the various consultation tables and bodies on the topic of SWDs. They also manage and administer allowances for certain specialized services.

Mission and Values of the CCSIs

The CCSI de l’Est (CCSI east) and the CCSI de l’Ouest (CCSI west) are the entry points for accessibility in higher education and support the entire college network in welcoming, integrating, supporting and including students with disabilities (SWDs).

Their mission is to offer diversified support adapted to the reality of the various colleges in order to contribute to the development of their expertise in accessibility for and the integration of SWDs. Their mission is also to contribute to the development, sharing, and transfer of knowledge and practices of the college network with respect to SWDs.

Several values drive the various actions of the CCSIs, notably the autonomy of the colleges, the cooperation between the various authorities and establishments of the network, the open-mindedness in a context of diversity and the adaptability for a service offer that meets the needs of people with disabilities.
