Hope is 

Not A Plan

 

The video, "Hope is Not A Plan" is now available on the website, in our blog and at Vimeo.com. This film should be required viewing for everyone, whether you have a disability or not. Why, you ask? Simple. Most of us will, at some time in our lives, become disabled in some way. The fact is that those of us with disabilities have no civil rights when compared to those of us who are not disabled. This should resonate with every Canadian. No disability? Your time may come. Do you want your rights? Watch the video.

 

An election is almost on us, and we need to discuss civil rights for people with disabilities with politicians. People with disabilities do not have a way to enforce civil rights in British Columbia, or indeed anywhere in Canada. This must change!  

 

View the video. Pass the link around. It's less than an hour long, and it can have a huge, and a positive, impact - if enough people see it!  

 
  
 
Happy Easter to all!
 
So many things have happened this past year. 
 
The most important change has been to our fiscal year which has been changed from April 1-March 31 to January 1-December 31 to better reflect the financial reporting required for grant applications.

Our Annual General Meeting will take place on Monday, April 11.  Please see the attached Notice of Meeting.Please note that  Memberships are now due. Make your reservation for the AGM by April 8, 2016 by calling 604-961-0117.
 
At the AGM we normally elect new directors for the year.  We are still looking for at least 2 people who would like to sit on our Board of Directors.  Please note that our directors are working directors not just decision makers. Specifically, we are looking for an equipment manager and a volunteer coordinator. Please check out our new Volunteer page on our website.

I am sad to announce that our organization lost two valued members this past year. Gavin Burgess was our newsletter editor and Audrey Breitkopf who was frequently found manning our booth at community events. They will be missed.  
   
 
Pub Night
 
On Saturday April 16th we are having a Pub Night at the Artful Dodger from 5 PM to 9 PM with a Silent Auction. See our poster for the event. Please reserve online or call 604-961-0117
