CLBC waitlist figures unreliable says stakeholder group

BC-CLAG urges external review of CLBC’s mandate and operations

For immediate release: October 6, 2011 – Statistics showing how many people with developmental disabilities are waiting for services across British Columbia are unreliable and misleading, says the BC Community Living Action Group (BC-CLAG), which is calling on the government to conduct an external review of CLBC’s mandate and operations.

“We have very little confidence in the waitlist numbers. They misrepresent the scope, scale and severity of the community living crisis affecting vulnerable adults and their families,” says BC-CLAG partner Faith Bodnar. “Restoring faith in the community living support system should begin with an acknowledgement of the scope of the problem,” adds Bodnar.
