What is a community council?

Community councils support community inclusion, citizenship and full participation of the people Community Living BC (CLBC) serves by:

  • Supporting the inclusion of the adults CLBC serves in all facets of community life
  • Providing information and advice to CLBC about local and regional issues that impact the adults CLBC serves

CLBC is the  Crown agency responsible for providing funding across B.C. to support adults diagnosed with a developmental disability, or adults diagnosed with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder or Autism Spectrum Disorder.

The 13 Community Councils that are established across the province help CLBC in reaching out to local communities. The Surrey Delta White Rock Community Council (SDWR CC) is one of theses 13 Community Councils, and has a membership of self-advocates, family members of the people CLBC serves, service providers and community members. Our area includes the communities of Surrey, Delta, White Rock and Tsawwassen.

HOW CAN YOU CONTRIBUTE?

The SDWR CC is looking for new members to join the Council as we strive to break down barriers associated with disability and help make a difference in the lives of the people CLBC serves in Surrey/Delta/White Rock.

NEED MORE INFORMATION

If you are interested in giving a commitment of time to participate with the council in the future, please contact the local CLBC office at 604-504-8310 (Surrey).
