Innovation through Community Based Projects
We partner with other organizations and groups to develop innovative initiatives for change. We believe that the only way to make real progress and bring about change is to collaborate with like-minded people.
One of our current projects is Access RDSP: a province-wide partnership between Plan Institute, Disability Alliance BC (DABC), and BC Aboriginal Network on Disability Society (BCANDS). Through this initiative, we work to encourage financial security via uptake of the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP).
Educational Training & Resources
We offer a suite of educational initiatives designed to empower and assist individuals, families, and organizations to plan for the future and ensure a good life for someone with a disability. We host annual retreats, publish books and manuals, and offer free or affordable online and in-person workshops. We also have a toll-free RDSP and disability planning helpline (1-844-311-7526), and many other resources.
Leadership & Policy Reform
We provide collaborative leadership by convening a diverse group of stakeholders to encourage public policy reform and system transformation. We are continually working with stakeholders and government to address some of the systemic issues faced by people with disabilities every day. By exploring solutions and making recommendations for reforms to public policy, we have seen significant changes in the way in which society and government view those with disabilities.
