T05 – Inclusive Housing for People with Diverse Abilities
People labelled with an intellectual disability come from a history of institutionalization and isolation. Today, because of affordable and inclusive housing, people with diverse abilities live in community alongside neighbours, family and friends, just like anyone else. BC People First is the provincial voice for people who have been labeled with an intellectual disability. Participants will hear stories that celebrate our freedom, challenge assumptions, and bring awareness about the importance of affordable, inclusive housing for all.
