The Province of BC has declared November to be Aboriginal Disability Awareness Month. The First Nations Summit and the Metis Nation British Columbia have also passed similar resolutions.
Community Living BC is proud to support the first-of-its-kind awareness month in Canada to help promote understanding of Aboriginal disability issues and recognize the contributions of Aboriginal people with disabilities within B.C.
CLBC staff members are committed to supporting all individuals with developmental disabilities to live good lives in welcoming communities. You can learn more about our recent efforts to improve access to services for First Nations communities here.
CLBC is committed to strengthening partnerships with local, regional and provincial Aboriginal representatives, and we join them in celebrating this month.
