Historical Archive Project on Community Living, Canada

Since January 2014 the Centre for Inclusion and Citizenship, a partnership between the University of British Columbia School of Social Work, community living organizations and supporters which seeks to further the inclusion and full citizenship of people with intellectual disabilities, has been convening a Historical Collections and Archives reference group, made up of self advocates, community leaders and scholars in the community living sector. The group works collaboratively to develop processes and partnerships for the preservation of historical materials by acquiring and processing collections from Community Living Organisations. The fonds are being processed to add to UBC’s records and will be available to the public by 2015.

The goal is a collection of materials that can be used by researchers, organizations, advocates and community initiatives to advance the inclusion of all citizens. For information on the Centre see http://www.cic.arts.ubc.ca
