Celebrate Community Inclusion Month 2019

Each October, CLBC joins British Columbians across the province in celebrating Community Inclusion Month. This month recognizes the contributions and potential of people with developmental disabilities, and the families, friends, caregivers, volunteers, community groups and employers who make our province stronger by ensuring their full participation. For the last 21 years, communities across B.C. have held events and initiatives to help build awareness about inclusion for adults with developmental disabilities, and to celebrate the people who include them.
