How can PDD do better with employment and community access?


The 
PDD Provincial Self-Advocates' Advisory Committee is a 
committee is made up of people with developmental disabilities from all across the province who are advocates for the rights of people with disabilities. Committee members share ideas from their regional self-advocacy groups with the committee and give advice on how to make the PDD program work better for the people who use it.

PDD stands for "Persons with developmental Disabilities". 
At the next meeting on Thursday, November 21st,  we want to bring back ideas from self-advocates from the Calgary region about the following ideas: 
  1. How can PDD do better to assist people with employment and community access supports?
  2. What is PDD doing well?
  3. What can PDD do better?
  4. What makes a good employer?

Share your ideas!!
One of the ways we are collecting this feedback is at the Disability Action Hall and having a talk about employment with the Calgary Worker's Resource Centre on Thursday, November 7th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. as well as talks at the Self-Advocacy Summit in June 2014. 

Members of the Hall are interested in what self-advocates have to say in all the Calgary region. 

If you, your organization and group of self-advocates are interested in sharing ideas, please give us a call or email us at 403.717.7630 and we can talk more about how to collect the ideas.

Please feel free to share this with other interested people.
