BC People First is excited to announce that we will be partnering with Community Living British Columbia to hold a Conference in March of 2018 in Abbotsford, BC.

This will combine the BCPF Conference (which happens every two years) with the annual CLBC South Fraser Regional Conference, and BCPF All General Meeting.

The South Fraser Region includes individuals living in individuals living in: Surrey, Delta, Langley, Abbotsford, Hope, Mission and Chilliwack.

The Conference will also be open to all members of BC People First from across the Province.

The theme of this Conference is: I BE PROUD, YOU BE PROUD. This is a continuation of the conversation about Disability Pride, and BC’s very first Disability Pride Parade, which occurred in June 2017 at the Inclusion BC Conference.
