Who we are
On December 16, 1955, a group of dedicated parents founded what is now called Community Living Victoria (CLV). Today, as the largest non-profit community living service provider on Vancouver Island, Community Living Victoria provides a range of support services to children, youth and adults with developmental disabilities and their families.
Our work is guided by our values, experience and history and draws from strong roots in the community. Community Living Victoria recognizes the rights of everyone to have a full range of life choices, including access to education, affordable and appropriate housing, leisure options, gainful employment and participation in the community. A healthy community encourages the involvement of everyone.
A survey team from CARF International* will be visiting on CLV from April 24 – 26th, 2017
Four surveyors will evaluate how well we meet international standards for quality. The survey will tell us what we are doing well and ways we might improve. The process will involve a pre survey introduction meetings, many site visits and interviews with staff, people supported, their networks as well as funders, Board members and others. It is always a pleasure to showcase all the wonderful things happening at CLV and hear ideas about ways we can be even better. To learn more about CARF visit our Accreditation page.
