BCANDS Strategic Partnerships / Memorandums of Understandings

Director

2015 – BCANDS team members with Nancy Milroy-Swainson, former Director General, Office for Disability Issues, Employment and Social Development Canada

“No man is an island” is a well-known saying, meaning that as individuals we are all an important part of the bigger “continent” which is mankind and that what we do, or what we don’t do, has effects on us all; this is also true for organizations such as BCANDS.

BCANDS maintains close ties with organizations, governments and service providers across the province and Canada in relation to health and disability information and services available to the Indigenous communities and persons within British Columbia. BCANDS continually establishes, solicits and maintains strategic partnerships to assist in our work in addressing our client’s important and diverse needs.

Throughout BCANDS history the Society has played a lead role in a number of provincial initiatives / alliances and has established several service agreements through Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) with a variety of leadership organizations. Some of these include:


                                      BCANDS “From the Outside Looking In…”                                                         2017 Indigenous Disability and Wellness Gathering 

On November 29th, 29th and 30th during the third anniversary of November being declared and proclaimed as “Aboriginal Disability Awareness Month” in British Columbia BCANDS will host the 2017 “From the Outside Looking In…” – Indigenous Disability and Wellness Gathering in Victoria, British Columbia.
