About the project
2021 – 2023
Over 100,000 000 Canadians with intellectual disabilities long for a home in communities where they belong. Many are isolated and at risk of harm. Accessible, affordable housing is scarce. So are the person-centred supports, social networks, and places of belonging necessary for well-being and inclusion. This Solutions Lab brought together multisectoral stakeholders with persons with disabilities and their families to share knowledge, and co-create and test solutions to the challenge of creating inclusive, affordable housing.
SHIFT Collaborative supported the design, facilitation and developmental evaluation of the initiative which included both a Community Lab in New Brunswick and a National Community of Practice.
