Each year, Community Living BC joins self advocates, families and our partners in the community living sector in recognizing December 3 as the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities. This day promotes the rights of the individuals we serve and celebrates their participation and contributions to their communities.
The theme of this year’s day is “Transformation towards sustainable and resilient society for all.” This is a theme that resonates with our work at CLBC, as we strive to meet our vision of lives filled with possibilities in welcoming communities.
