Events across B.C. celebrate Community Living Month 2016


This October marked the 18th Community Living Month in British Columbia. The annual celebration recognized the contributions and accomplishments of people with developmental disabilities across our province. We’re happy to report that it was an eventful month with great celebrations taking place in communities across the province.

Thank you to everyone involved in coordinating and promoting the many great community events, which included dances, barbecues, award ceremonies and photo contests, for your ongoing dedication to the vision of good lives in welcoming communities!

Community Living Month Highlights

Community Living Month was launched with an announcement from the provincial government and an official proclamation, as well as special message from CLBC CEO Seonag Macrae, announcements by many other groups and organizations, and proclamations by a number of local municipalities.

During Community Living Month we shared posts on CLBC’s Facebook and Twitter pages by using the hashtag #clmonth2016 and asked others to do the same. You can click the links below to see a roundup of many of the great social media posts:
