The Government of the Northwest Territories is conducting a review on Supported Living services provided to adults with disabilities.
We would like to hear from individuals with experience of, or need for, supported living services through public engagement sessions in various communities. This information will assist us to respond to how best to meet the needs of NWT residents in the future.
Supported Living services provide assistance to adults with disabilities, enabling them to live as independently as possible, thereby providing opportunities for community participation and inclusion.
NWT persons with disabilities and their families and caregivers are encouraged to participate by attending any of the following public engagement sessions in-person by registering by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 1-647-201-9680. Drop-ins are also welcome if space allows. COVID-19 restrictions will be in place, including a proof of vaccination requirement as well as masks.
