ILS is a registered not-for-profit Society and charitable organization governed by a Board of 10 Directors elected from the organization’s membership. The Board is made up of family members, self-advocates, local business people and other interested community members.
We offer a range of programs and services that are funded by various BC Ministries and Crown agencies. Our primary funders are Community Living British Columbia and the Ministry of Children and Family Development. Services include a range of child development supports, family respite, adult respite, a full range of residential supports including staffed homes, home sharing and supported living, community inclusion, personal network development and supported and customized employment.
All services are accredited by the Commission for the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. ILS is very active locally, provincially and nationally in projects and initiatives that advance the inclusion and citizenship of people with developmental disabilities.
Our dedicated staff and volunteers are committed to a shared vision that our communities are places that welcome and value everyone.
We also welcome and encourage the participation of any community members who are interested in supporting the people we serve and our organization to be the very best it can be.
