For more than two decades, CLBC has proudly marked the occasion of Community Inclusion Month in October. This month allows us to honor the dedication of individuals, families, and community members who tirelessly work towards creating more inclusive communities and opportunities for all British Columbians, especially those with developmental disabilities.
Every year, CLBC joins the Province and Inclusion BC to identify a theme that helps build awareness about the importance of including people with developmental disabilities in all aspects of their communities. This year, the focus for the month is to build awareness about the importance of including people with developmental disabilities in their communities in all aspects of society, including living independently, access to health, employment, cultural activities, recreation, and sports.
You can also visit CLBC’s Community Inclusion Month 2023 webpage here, which will be updated throughout the month with stories, events and other updates, including the announcement of the 2023 CLBC Widening Our World (WOW) Award recipients.
Join us in recognizing Community Inclusion Month by sharing your support on social media. Use the hashtag #CommunityInclusionMonth to spread the message of inclusivity far and wide.
Thank you for being part of making B.C. communities places that include everyone. We wish you a happy Community Inclusion Month 2023!
