ABOUT INCLUSION CANADA NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR
WHO WE ARE
Inclusion Canada Newfoundland and Labrador is committed to a future of inclusive communities where:
Every person with a disability is considered as a member of a family
All people learn together in regular classrooms and neighbourhood schools
Every person is supported to live in their own home
All people have the opportunity for meaningful employment
Individuals are empowered and supported in decision-making that affects them
Every person has opportunities to form lasting and meaningful relationships
Inclusion Canada Newfoundland and Labrador is a non-profit organization that works with and on behalf of persons with intellectual disabilities and their families. Inclusion Canada Newfoundland and Labrador promotes a vision of communities where everyone belongs and has a rightful place; where families support a person’s right to full citizenship.
It is simple really-most of us experience it every day. We are welcomed into our community, work with our peers and go to school with our friends. Inclusion Canada Newfoundland and Labrador works hard to make sure persons with disabilities are welcomed and supported in their community in the same way.
What Can We Do Together?
We can learn about, and share information on: support for families, income and disability supports, inclusive education, securing citizenship and legal capacity for all, RDSP’s, SET mentoring, future planning, supported employment, the UN convention of the rights of persons with disabilities, supportive living and much more.
We can work together, and with the government and other agencies, help build more inclusive communities.
We can provide guidance and direction to others seeking or needing support.
