Help make sure your community includes everyone. Join a CLBC Community Council
Do you want to make your neighbourhood, town or region a welcoming place for people with developmental disabilities? Consider joining a CLBC Community Council.
CLBC’s 13 Community Councils are currently looking for new members from cities and towns across B.C., from diverse cultural groups, and from BC First Nations communities.
Community Living British Columbia has introduced a Quality Service Commitment to establish a clear and public awareness of the way people with developmental disabilities, Autism and FASD can expect to be treated by CLBC
CLBC wants to ensure that individuals who access services funded by our organization are living good lives in welcoming communities
As a result of the de-institutionalization of people into community living environments over 27 years ago, we now have, for the first time, a growing population of individuals with developmental disabilities who are aging in community
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”.
Every year, Community Living BC’s WOW! Recognition Awards celebrate a different way of making people feel included
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.
