The BC People First Society (BCPF) is a non-profit provincial organization that is part of the international PEOPLE FIRST movement.
BCPF has been the independent voice of self-advocates in BC for over 40 years.
We are a provincial non-profit society made up of a group of people who want to make sure that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are included and respected in our communities as full citizens.
We do this by supporting each other to speak up for ourselves and by sharing advocacy skills with each other.
