“We are delighted that our children with exceptional needs and our First Nations, Metis and Inuit children are being recognized with this important announcement,” said Sheila Taylor, Chair of the CBE Board of Trustees. “We are also pleased that the government has recognized the need to provide modern facilities and equipment for our high school students to be successful in the future.”
