The Canadian Association for Community Living (CACL) and IRIS – Institute for Research and Development on Inclusion and Society are pleased to announce the creation of a full-time Managing Director position at IRIS, the research and development arm of CACL.
We are pleased to announce that Blakes was honoured with the Canadian Association for Community Living President's Award on Thursday, October 15, 2015 at a presentation in Vancouver, BC.
The award was presented to Blakes in recognition of their ongoing pro bono service to our organization. Blakes became involved with CACL in 2001 through Partner Ron Richler, who is now retired. Since then, Blakes continues to not only provide pro bono assistance to CACL, but also helps bring awareness to the stigma surrounding intellectual disabilities.
When 23 men met in Charlottetown PEI in 1864, their collective thinking and visioning ultimately led to the formation of Canada.
A Bold Vision wants to know, what do 23 women envision for our country for the next 150 years?
As Mary Whitehead, Chair of The CACL Family Leadership and Grassroots Engagement Advisory Committee wrote in her editorial of our most recent issue of Coming Together:
The Canadian Association for Community Living is conducting a short survey on the employment of youth and other adults with intellectual disabilities. The aim of the survey is to find out how people with intellectual disabilities are doing in getting paid employment in regular jobs in the community.
