Our Priority Areas

In 2006, the board of Inclusion BC, formerly BCACL, identified five priority areas to guide the work of Inclusion BC. Through a variety of projects and initiatives, we are working to achieve our vision, inspiring a world where everyone belongs. Click on the headings below to learn more about our five priority areas.

For more information on Inclusion BC's individual advocacy work, contact Inclusion BC's Executive Director Faith Bodnar.

While these are our identified priority areas, our provincial advocacy work addresses a broad range of issues. Our work is based on policy developed by people with developmental disabilities, family members, advocates and service providers involved in our provincial federation.

Vision: Supporting children and families is an integral part of our community culture. Supports are well funded, readily accessible, personalized andanchored in policy and practice.

Vision: An inclusive education culture celebrates and embraces uniqueness, has appropriate supports and resources, and provides equitable access to lifelong learning.

Employment

Vision: Every person with a developmental disability who wants a job has a job.

Disability Supports

Vision: Everyone has supports for daily living and enjoys full social participation in inclusive and accessible communities.  

Income Security
