We invite your input on a new CLBC service

November 9th, 2016

The Advancing New Support Options (ANSO) Project is inviting individuals and families receiving services and service providers to contribute input on a new CLBC service. ANSO will be hosting community meetings across B.C. from November 2016 to February 2017 to gather input on the creation of a new service to connect individuals with employment and personal development opportunities and support stronger social participation.

The Provincial Design Team will be making two tours around the province over the next couple of months to get your input on a new service, and we hope you will join us!
