Goals

  • CCBFPH is acting in an advisory capacity for the College of the French Community Commission (COCOF) on all issues affecting people with disabilities.
  • They give an opinion on their own initiative or upon request from the College.
  • Their opinion is requested on draft decrees and their applications, as well as when a norm requires obtaining the opinion of an advisory body for a service or a center recognized by the College.
  • CCBFPH acts in order to achieve the greatest possible inclusion of persons with disabilities.
