Living a Good Life
Community Living has a new strategic plan. This collaborative effort brought together a cross section of our stakeholders (self-advocates, families, board members, staff and managers).
Our plan, built on the theme of Living a Good Life, outlines three key Strategic Directions:
• Be an innovator: Offer creative, high-quality services and supports.
• Staff are valued: Continue to promote growth through mentorship and recognition.
• Promote community awareness and knowledgeable families.
Individual teams will be part of the implementation and will develop their own set of actions that serve to move these directions forward and help the people we support to “Live a Good Life.”

Thanks to the Township of Brock Fire Department for making John’s Dream a Reality
Anyone who knows John knows that he has long been fascinated with the world of firefighters. And on Thursday, John had the opportunity to live his dream and be a volunteer fire fighter for a day.
John’s day was full and included everything a volunteer fire fighter would do: a briefing with the chief, doing station detail, like cleaning the fire trucks, and attending a harbour watercraft demo. John enjoyed every moment of the day; riding in the fire truck was a thrill, the stop for lunch was short as John was ready to move on to his next stop, a tour of one of the fire stations.
Many thanks to the Brock Fire department for pulling this amazing day together, to all the crews at the stations John visited and especially to Ryan Edgar who spent the last few weeks planning the fantastic day.
