B.C. Aboriginal Network on Disability Society

Dear Community Partners: 

I would like to provide you with details on the Province of BC – on increasing accessibility for people with disabilities – Conversations:

 This is an opportunity for all to participate in a conversation on persons with a disability.  There is a wide range of topics identified, such as  housing and accessibility, work, personal supports, etc.  There are various options to participate in the conversation, including community engagement sessions held in parts of BC from January 20, 2014 to February 26, 2014, which range from late afternoon to evening events.  There are other ways to participate in the conversation, by mail, phone, internet, hose an event.  Overall, you will be able to participate until  March 11, 2014.

 The conversations will be transferred into a briefing document, called a white paper, which will form the discussions for a summit gathering proposed for June 2014.  There is an opportunity to learn more about the summit on the website.

 For more information, please go the following link:

 Please participate and provide input on Aboriginal persons with disabilities.  Please feel free to forward this information to your contacts.

 Thank you for your time and attention.
