Community Living Month is Here!

October 1, 2009

BCACLCommunityLivingMonthThere’s lots going on all over the province this month – and many great opportunities to meet new people and make friends.    This year’s focus is on inclusive education:

October is a time to celebrate the gifts that people with developmental disabilities bring to our vibrant and diverse communities. These communities start at school where all students learn to live alongside peers. They learn together; they play together; they grow and are nurtured together. As a result of the past 20 years of inclusive education practices in BC, people with developmental disabilities have better access to real work for real pay, post secondary education, economic security and better overall health and well-being.

Check out the bcacl website for lots of great information and this page about events in your communities.   You can also check out the www.startwithi.ca pages for their listings.   If you’re in the Vancouver area, come and drop by our offices for our open house on Oct 20th
