The Transitioning Towards Independence Resource Fair is less than one month away!

Did you know that this Fair is organized by a dedicated team of EMSB teachers? Tanya Yankowski, Carla Toffoli and Anna Gualtieri, under the direction of principal James Fequet, from John Grant High School, are devoted to improving the lives of the students and families that they work with on a daily basis. Because of this, they have an excellent sense of what information needs to be shared. That is what brings so much heart to this event. It has something for everyone in the special needs field, whether you are a parent looking for resources for your child, teen or adult, or a teacher or child care worker looking for tools to share.

Do you know someone that could benefit from learning about resources in the special needs community? Tanya, Carla and Anna bring 40 exhibitors to the fair, all ready to share their services, expertise and knowledge with parents, teachers, caregivers and students. To see who these exhibitors are,  visit our Facebook event page at
While you are there, please join the event, and share it with your friends so we can reach, and ultimately help as many people as possible

Two lectures will take place during the fair that will provide attendees with invaluable information. 

Gamoon Lau from EDUCATE montreal will speak at 7 p.m. about general educational planning and transitions, covering everything form Individual Education Plans to the role of a Child Care Worker. 

Stefanie Demberg from CSSS Cavendish will speak at 8 p.m. about the services offered by the CSSS and the government of Quebec.

The Fair and lectures all take place at the EMSB, 6000 Fielding Avenue, Montreal, Quebec.

Space is limited, so register today at or call 514-484-4161.

We look forward to seeing you there, so stop by the Inspirations table - we have a special surprise for our first few visitors!
