In North America, between 5 and 11% of students at postsecondary level in North America have one or more handicaps. These are the ?ndings of a Pan-Canadian study carried out by our team. The research shows that almost all Canadian postsecondary institutions have handicapped students enrolled; that only one third to one half of students with disabilities are registered for services available for the handicapped at their college or university; and lastly, that there is a higher percentage of handicapped students enrolled in Canadian colleges (including cégeps) than in universities (3.74% versus 1.62%).
