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 shines a light on the rights of the individuals we serve and recognizes efforts to ensure they have a good quality of life in welcoming communities.
This year, the day coincides with the 10-year anniversary of the United Nations adopting the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The Convention’s commitments to rights and respect continue to guide us as we all work together to create more inclusive communities and celebrate each individual’s diverse abilities.
