During the month of May, Community Living Associations across Ontario celebrated the successes of individuals with intellectual disabilities by reflecting on our history, as well as looking towards a future full of possibility and hope.
Our biggest event celebrating Community Living Month was Community Living Day at the Legislature. Co-hosted by Community Living Ontario, this annual event provided an opportunity for members and friends of community living to meet with members of the provincial legislature and discuss the work of community living.
Over 150 individuals with an intellectual disability, families, members and staff of Community Living Associations took part in the day’s events, which included a lunch reception, meetings with members of the provincial legislature, and an afternoon legislative session where the work of Community Living was recognized by MPPs.
