Community Living Winnipeg is a voluntary, not for profit organization committed to people with intellectual disabilities and their families. We are a member of a national federation of over 400 community, 10 provincial and three territorial associations together forming the Canadian Association for Community Living. Our name reflects the growing understanding that the right to live a full, integrated life within the community – to live, to go to school, to work, to enjoy recreation and to be active in retirement – belongs to us all.
Based on our belief that it is only through presence and participation can a person experience being a member of community, we envision an environment where people, regardless of ability can grow, make choices, and be valued and contributing members of the community. We envision people receiving support in natural settings such as their own home, neighborhood, schools, recreation centres and workplaces.
Community Living Winnipeg is dedicated to the enhancement of the lives and status of people who live with an intellectual disability and their families by promoting their full inclusion, support and acceptance in the community.
