Community Living is a significant employer in the region. Not only do we have a large workforce, we also make a generous contribution to our community in many other ways.
By the numbers
- 147 – Casual, part-time and full-time employees
- 150 – The number of people who have intellectual disabilities who access our services
- 43 – The number of local employers in our area who employ someone with an intellectual disability
- 20 – Organizations that count someone with an intellectual disability among their volunteers
As part of our role in the community, we organize and participate in events. Our popular International Women’s Day breakfast brings together a number of our agency partners, employers and community members, while featuring an inspiring local woman as our keynote speaker.
We have also invited speakers through our Community Living connections throughout the province for conference, workshops and seminars available to the local community. When we learn something awesome, we like to share it!
In addition to hosting events, we also enjoy participating in events organized by others, including Downtown Pembroke, Algonquin College, Petawawa Military Family Resource Centre, Upper Ottawa Valley Chamber of Commerce, Renfrew County District School Board and more.
