Ontario is calling on interested individuals to apply for the Minister's Advisory Council on Special Education (MACSE). The Council members will provide advice to the Minister of Education on the development and delivery of special education programs and services.

The Ministry of Education is currently looking for individuals to volunteer their time and expertise with MACSE to help shape special education in Ontario. The ministry is seeking applications from educational assistants, Indigenous communities, social workers, speech and language pathologists, and teachers. The ministry is also seeking individuals to fill positions that provide advice on specific exceptionalities. Members will advise on the delivery of special education programs and services for exceptional students and are consulted on ministry proposals for new programs and services or changes to existing ones. 

Individuals interested in being part of MACSE should apply to the Public Appointments Secretariat before Friday, March 6, 2020. Candidates selected to serve will have a broad knowledge of special education and a wide range of background experiences. In order to maintain a membership that represents all regions of the province, the minister will look for candidates that speak to rural and urban perspectives, public and separate schools, elementary and secondary education and diverse cultural and linguistic minority groups.
