Welcome to the Summer 2016 Edition of CLBC’s “Celebrate Diverse ABILITIES” magazine

Celebrate Diverse ABILITIES is created under the guidance of the CLBC Editorial Board, which is made up of self advocates from across the province, as well as family members.

The theme for this edition is “where I feel welcome in my community” and self advocates share stories about the places where they feel welcomed and included in their own communities.

You can also hear from community organizations, centres, clubs and businesses about why inclusion is important to them and how they work to be welcoming to everyone, including individuals with diverse abilities.

To begin reading the newsletter you can navigate through all the stories on the left side column of this page.
