The comprehensive home sharing policy framework helps guide the practice of everyone involved in the shared living network. This framework is consistent with CLBC’s values, person-centred practice, and quality of life outcomes. (These elements are discussed in more detail later in this module.)

The policies are clearly written rules that define what is expected of home sharing providers in specific situations. As a contractor, you are obligated to meet the expectations outlined in the following policies:

Service provider agencies that contract with CLBC also have their own policies to ensure that their home sharing providers meet the requirements. Monitoring and reporting are two of the measures used to ensure that home sharing providers are in conformance with the Standards for Home Sharing and meet the expectations outlined in associated policies.
