Pathways Web-Banner                                                                                                                  Pathways to Independence

We are pleased to announce that Paul Gauthier, IFRC Executive Director, has teamed with The BC Association For Individualized Technology & Supports (BCITS) to develop an exciting new peer discussion group; "Pathways to Independence".

Pathways to Independence is an opportunity for peers to meet regularly to discuss topics of concern and interest brought forward by group members. Currently there are four sessions scheduled and discussions may range from general interest topics to common concerns shared by the community.  The group is also an opportunity to invite key speakers, such as BC Employment Standards, Employee Benefits, or Translink

Our long term goal is to develop a sustainable discussion group in which we can not only provide support to peers in the community, but to identify peer leaders who will take the lead on challenges by making recommendations on various policy and programs that effect the community, or any special projects the group may wish to engage in.
