A world where everybody belongs

 

Letter from the Executive Director

At Inclusion BC our focus this past year has been on ensuring people and their families live full and inclusive lives where they are respected, empowered, and informed to make decisions for themselves and the people they love. The people we support, their families, and our community partners are an engaged and motivated group representing a diverse range of needs and interests. We know our collective success depends on our ability to truly engage people in thoughtful discussions on how we advance inclusion together.

To support the development of our 2020 Strategic Plan, Inclusion BC talked with staff, board members, people with disabilities, families, member organizations, government officials, and community living peers to learn their views on our organization.  During these many conversations, we heard that people value our advocacy and the quality of our Annual Learning Conference.  We also learned that we have work to do to diversify our engagement strategies for building stronger relationships with Indigenous communities, those new to Canada and young families.

We are proud to showcase our efforts over the last 12 months but are equally excited to start implementing changes that will make a real difference to the people and communities we serve.
