Position Statements and Letter to the Minister of Health

The Community Living Society is a member of Inclusion BC, which is a provincial federation of community organizations who support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. InclusionBC advocate on behalf of their membership and all people with developmental disabilities to help remove barriers.

In an effort to communicate to those with the power to make structural change, InclusionBC is writing a series of position statements outlining their stance on key issues facing the disability community. Five position statements will be released this this year, along with requests for meetings with Ministers to discuss concerns and calls to action.

The first of these five position statements, focused on access to health and coordinated care. This statement reflected our sector’s ongoing concern that people are falling through the cracks of our provincial health care system, and outlined ways that this intolerable situation could be addressed. Both technical and plain language versions of the document are available. A letter was also sent to the Minister or Health Adrian Dix requesting a meeting to discuss our collective concerns.
