Disability Supports

Our Vision

Every British Columbian has the supports needed to live full and meaningful lives with dignity, so that we all truly belong in inclusive and accessible communities.


Why it's important

Every person in our province has worth, is valued, and has the right to be fully included in our communities. Many adults with developmental disabilities need disability supports, including residential, life skills, employment and community inclusion supports that empower them to live safe, healthy and productive lives and to participate as full citizens.

But too many British Columbians are still being denied this fundamental right. Many young people fall into a “black hole” after they leave school because provincial funding for Community Living BC (CLBC) has fallen behind the need for adult supports. Most adults with developmental disabilities in BC still live with and are primarily supported by their families, who face a lifelong struggle because CLBC programs intended to assist them are under-funded.
