‘Inclusion Champions’ get a WOW!

Looking for nominees for their Widening Our World Award

Community Living BC (CLBC) is looking for nominees for their Widening Our World Award, which recognizes “individuals who have gone above and beyond to build B.C. communities that include people of all abilities.”

“The Widening Our World Awards were established seven years ago to provide provincial recognition to individuals, family members, employers, service providers, teachers, volunteers and community organizations that are making a positive difference in the lives of adults CLBC serves,” said CLBC CEO Seonag Macrae in an Oct. 15 announcement.

“Since 2008, the WOW awards have been given to more than 45 people from around the province who have found important ways to ensure individuals with developmental disabilities can be full participants in community life.”

CLBC provides supports and services to more than 18,000 individuals with developmental disabilities and works with them, their families, service providers and community groups to build good lives in welcoming communities.

The WOW Awards were launched to coincide with Community Living Month in B.C., which takes place in October. More information and WOW nomination forms are available through communitylivingbc.ca. Nominations are open until Nov. 30.
