Community Engagement Workshops

From Oct. 30 to Nov. 27, the Ministry of Social development is hosting community engagement workshops in 14 communities throughout the province to get feedback on the proposed integrated service delivery model.

Community Engagement Workshops:

Developing a more integrated service delivery system is an important part of the work that needs to be done to deliver on government’s commitment to improve services for people with developmental disabilities and their families.

 

Everyone’s experiences and input counts so whether you’re a self-advocate, a family member, service provider, health practitioner, educator or local government staff – your participation matters. Your feedback is important to ensure government is heading in the right direction with this proposed model.
