About ASSOCIATION FOR COMMUNITY LIVING-MANITOBA INC/ASSOCIATION PO
Community Living Manitoba is dedicated to the full inclusion of persons of all ages with an intellectual disability (defined as a life-long condition, which interferes with one’s ability to learn at the same pace or to the same extent as others). We are a strong provincial network working together with partners, families and governments. We seek creative and inspired approaches to support the empowerment of people with intellectual disabilities and their families in all aspects of their lives.
Our vision is a province where people with intellectual disabilities and their families see open doors and many possibilities for learning, working and contributing to their communities. We see the benefits when circles of support surround people with intellectual disabilities in communities that value diversity.
