Learning Series for Fraser Valley Families

Inclusion BC has partnered with some of our organizational members in the Fraser Valley to bring a series of sessions to support family leadership and nurture connections in the region.

Families living in the Fraser Valley are invited to attend this series of FREE virtual sessions. Learn ways to strengthen advocacy and access resources to help build a good life for loved ones with a disability. Join other families in sharing knowledge and developing community support.

This series is meant to be taken together and registration is for all 8 sessions. As families are busy, there may be times you cannot attend. People are welcome to attend the ones they can.

Please register by October 12, 2021. After you register you will receive one Zoom link for each session.

You can learn more about each session in the program below and on the Inclusion BC blog.

Inclusion BC is able to offer some bursaries for child care or other supports to facilitate families’ participation. You can submit a bursary application here.
