Province supports grassroot engagement

This work includes engagement with individuals with developmental disabilities

A number of engagement and consultation activities are underway as the provincial government continues to deliver on the 12-point plan to improve services to people with developmental disabilities, Social Development Minister Stephanie Cadieux says.

Since the release of the comprehensive plan in January, an inter-ministry team – including the ministries of Social Development, Children and Family Development, Education and Health, along with Community Living BC – has been working to develop an integrated delivery system that will improve supports for people with developmental disabilities and their families.

This work includes engagement with individuals with developmental disabilities to better understand the supports and services they want to receive.
