Annual Report

The CLS is proud to showcase success stories over the year in our Annual Reports.


CLS has been accredited since 2005 by CARF International, an independent, non-profit accreditor of health and human services. At our 4th site survey in February 2015, we again received a three-year accreditation; the highest result possible. Click on the link below to see our latest CARF Accreditation Survey Report.


During the 2015-16 year, 188 individuals who access CLBC-funded services through four accredited organizations in the Vancouver-Coastal, Fraser, and Interior (South-Central Okanagan and North Okanagan) regions participated in a survey process in which they were asked to provide information about their quality of life in the areas of independence (personal development, self-determination), social participation (interpersonal relations, social inclusion, rights), and well-being (physical well-being, emotional well-being, material well-being).
