Our Values

Equality

All people are created equal in rights, dignity, and the potential to achieve great things.  True opportunity requires that we all have equal access to the benefits, burdens and responsibilities of our society regardless of race, gender, class, religion, sexual orientation, ability/disability, or other aspects of what we look like or where we come from.

Respect

Our highly committed and dedicated team of community support professionals offer people a caring and individual service, designed to meet their personal and unique needs. This person-centred approach is the foundation of our service and ensures a strong, caring and shared respectful relationship with the people we support.

Accountability

Accountability and transparency are essential to quality services within any human service field. The Society understands that we are ultimately responsible to all individuals in support, their families and other stakeholders for all our decisions and actions.

Gifts

All people have gifts to share; sometimes it’s just a matter of finding the right opportunities and connections. The Society endeavours to create safe and secure environments so people are free to share their gifts with their community.

Learning

The Society believes lifelong learning is the ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated pursuit of knowledge for either personal or professional reasons. Although sometimes learning requires support, ultimately, it enhances not only social inclusion, active citizenship and personal development, but competitiveness and employability.

Message from Our Executive Director…

Web Ready Brenda_BruceThis year the Society will be celebrating 60 years of service to Chilliwack and the surrounding communities with a variety of “Diamond Jubilee” events.  We are so grateful that several of our founding members were able to see their dreams of true community living become a reality for their sons and daughters.   The CSCL remains committed to ensuring that all individuals experience full lives in their communities and have the supports they require to meet their needs.
As an organization, we take pride in being responsive, innovative, flexible and accountable to all constituents.    We all know that this can be highly challenging in the face of rapid growth and declining resources; however, our commitment  to the individuals and families that we serve is unwavering.  We are inspired by their vision and excited about the new opportunities that lie ahead of us.
