Goal of the campaign  

This campaign aims to map local data on housing demands for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and to recognize community leaders as experts by working with communities.  

We hope to increase inclusive housing opportunities, obtain key findings in ten communities across the province and strengthen advocacy by empowering and supporting community leaders. 

Why it’s important 

More than 5,000 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are looking for homes in British Columbia. Breaking down this number per community will enable key information to be used for strong local advocacy with governments. 

A Call to Action 

Inclusion BC welcomes members interested in mapping the housing needs and local context of their community. If you are interested in joining this campaign, you can write an email to info@inclusionbc.org 

What We’re Doing 

We launched the Community Engagement and Partnership Mapping campaign to highlight the need for, barriers to, and opportunities for inclusive housing for the next three years (2022-2025).
