Message from the Consultation Team Chair

I am pleased to advise the public engagement about the safety of people with developmental disabilities in their homes is now underway.
Led by a consultation team of representatives from the disability community, the engagement will focus on listening to ideas and proposed solutions from individuals, families, service providers and other stakeholders that are not only about safety, but also about affirming the rights of people with developmental disabilities to live in their community with dignity.
There are two ways of providing input: an online questionnaire and community forums being held across the province. Visit humanservices.alberta.ca/pddconsultation to fill out the questionnaire or to get information about attending a forum. Everyone with an interest in the well-being and community inclusion of people with developmental disabilities is encouraged to participate.

John te Linde
Chair, PDD Safety Standards Consultation Team
