Community Living BC Meetings

Representatives of Community Living B.C. (Lois Hollstedt Board Chair, Rick Mowles, Interim CEO; Carol Goozh, V.P. Quality Services; and Doug Woollard, V.P. Community Planning and Development) toured the Province beginning early July of 2005 to meet with individuals, families and others to discuss the move from MCFD to CLBC.

We understand that CLBC representatives did not have anyone recording issues raised and responses given during their presentations.

Below is feedback FamilyNet received from various family members (parents or siblings of children and youth with special needs or adults with developmental disabilities) on some of the CLBC meetings, based on their own notes and impressions.
