Siblings: Citizens with a Cause Is Recruiting!

Siblings: Citizens with a Cause is a group of sibling advocates with a vision for a more inclusive Canada. Our team of siblings have important advocacy roles at Community Living Ontario, as they ensure that siblings of those who have disabilities are heard and represented in all settings. Their daily interactions with their siblings allow them to see first-hand the exclusion their siblings face, which is their motivation to advocate for a more inclusive Canada. This supportive network of youth share personal stories, resources, and are a helping hand to anyone who would like it through advocacy initiatives such as their Siblings meetups. At these monthly webinars, youth and allies come together to discuss navigating life in Canada.  


Siblings: Citizens with a Cause is now recruiting new siblings to continue its advocacy efforts and expand its youth network!  


Now’s your chance to get involved!

Agnes Palaganas, CLO's Youth and Community Engagement Coordinator, at apalaganas@communitylivingontario.ca
