British Columbia Deaf Education Committee (BCDEC)

BCDEC is the gateway for determining a student’s eligibility to enter the BC Provincial School for the Deaf and/or the Provincial Oral Program.

The BCSD offers students who are eligible a learning and social environment that allows them to access information in the way that best meets their needs. Students attending BCSD also have the opportunity to build friendships with peers and potentially forge lifelong relationships.

All applications for these programs will be carefully reviewed by BCDEC before a decision is made.

***Please note that the contact info and schedule of meeting dates will be changing in the upcoming weeks. The purpose of BCDEC and referral process will not be affected by this transition. More details will be shared shortly, visit often for updates.
