How Volunteering Helped Me Build a Network

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!

North Shore Advisory Committee on Disability Issues is Looking for New Members! Banner

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.

For more information on the ACDI please contact the District of North Vancouver at acdi@dnv.org or 604-921-3459 or visit www.dnv.org/acdi

Here’s what People with Disabilities and their Families said about Housing

In 2016, the NSDRC Association and Foundation Boards began a housing engagement project called Options for Us – Housing for People with Disabilities on the North Shore with the goal of asking a range of people with disabilities and their families and caregivers about the current housing situation, and what would work better.

The report can be viewed as a PDF here: Final Report on Options for Us Engagements
