This new guide, funded with the support of the Vancouver Foundation, is meant to assist self-advocates and families considering starting a user- or family- governed group and to aid them in meeting their employment goals.

The guide will also be helpful to professionals and policymakers thinking about new ways to support self-advocates and families to live self-determined lives.

Along with the guide you will find a plain-language version and numerous sample templates.

We hope that these are helpful to you.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact either Arlene ( or Catriona (
