CLBC Newsletter “The Citizen” – Fall 2014 Edition & Survey
The Fall 2014 edition of CLBC’s The Citizen newsletter is now available.
Going forward, The Citizen will be prepared by an Editorial Board made up of individuals and families CLBC serves. The Editorial Board invites you to complete a short 2-minute survey on The Citizen which will inform their work.
Community Living BC (CLBC) recognizes that individuals with developmental disabilities are a part of the growing community of online users, especially through social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, and that the Internet can be an unsafe place for people; particularly those who are more vulnerable. With this in mind, CLBC has launched icanbesafeonline.com, Canada’s first website dedicated to educating adults with developmental disabilities and their families on how to use the Internet safely.
CLBC wants to ensure that individuals who access services funded by our organization are living good lives in welcoming communities
CLBC's “Start with Hi” public awareness initiative helps British Columbians realize that through small but important actions they can play a role in their communities to increase the safety of people with developmental disabilities. The initiative encourages people to acknowledge and connect with people with developmental disabilities by simply saying “Hi”.
