From Presence to Citizenship

Putting Person-Centred Thinking into Practice

A Knowledge Exchange Project


Community Living Brant is one of ten agencies who are part of a two-year Ministry of Community and Social Services sponsored initiative to share best practices and success stories in the Developmental Services (DS) sector led by Community Living Atikokan.


Our Objectives:

  1. To support Developmental Service organizations who are prepared to make the shift, by providing them with best practices, success stories and practical tools to accelerate the transition.
  2. To develop a permanent learning community where DS agencies can continue to share best practices and success stories so that we all continue to learn and improve our person-centred practices.

On the journey to inclusive society, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are now present in all aspects of communities. This Learning Exchange will explore…what’s next? We are challenging restrictive assumptions and practices, and exploring successful strategies for seizing opportunities and building new relationships with other people and places in our community to facilitate social change and full citizenship.
