How do I.....?Let’s Talk About Employment!
When you have a disability whether it is visible or invisible your opportunities to network and find employment might be influenced by whether you can leave your home, have internet and phone access or access to transportation. One way to build your network is to consider volunteering your time in the community.

North Shore Advisory Committee on Disability Issues is Looking for Members!
Are you a person with a disability living on the North Shore that wants to make your community more accessible? The North Shore Advisory Committee on Disability Issues (ACDI) needs you!
The ACDI is a tri-municipal committee made up of persons with disabilities living on the North Shore. The Committee’s mandate is to formulate proposals, review projects and make recommendations to the three North Shore municipalities that promote, develop and sustain an accessible community, free of physical and social barriers.
The ACDI is a great way of being active in the community and getting involved in a range of projects to promote accessibility.
Past accomplishments of the ACDI include a campaign on how businesses can support persons with disabilities, guidelines to make streets and sidewalks more accessible and work to promote accessibility in the new Delbrook Community Recreation Centre.
DETAIL: Monthly ACDI meetings are the last Thursday of each month at the District of North Vancouver (5-7 p.m.). Sub-committees meet on Thursdays at various times across the North Shore.
