An Ordinary Good Life: Competitive Employement and Other Aspects of a Full and Rich LIfe - Community Living Ontario Presentation
This session will explore the current state-of-the-art in employment services for people with an intellectual disability and how to create meaningful opportunities to enrich people's lives beyond their work day. Panelists will discuss employment in detail - the opportunities, current strategies to engage employers, the ideal service delivery model, what success looks like and transition strategies in moving from sheltered program models. Ontario's new Centre for Excellence in Employment Services will also be introduced, touching on the services available to help agencies build and operate successful employment services.
In addition to work, however, most people also enjoy a range of leisure or interest-driven roles or pursuits that connect us with like-minded people in our neighourhoods and communities and give further shape and meaning to our days. The panel will also explore other community-based opportunities that will help comprise a full and rich life.

We were fortunate again this year to be the recipient of the proceeds generated from this year’s 14th Annual Sault Ste. Marie Airport Development Corporation Golf tournament which was held at Crimson Ridge on August 21, 2015. Proceeds from this year’s tournament will help assist the people that we support to enhance their lifestyle and enable inclusion into our communities. It was another beautiful day on the course and a sell out. This year we were granted a cheque in the amount of $16,000.00. A big "Thank you" to the Sault Ste. Marie Airport Development Corporation Golf Committee.
