Who We Are:
Inclusion Westman (formerly Community Living Brandon) is a voluntary not-for-profit organization committed to enriching the lives of people who live with an intellectual disability in the Westman region by promoting their full inclusion in the community. The work we do benefits not only the individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families, but the community in which they reside.
Incorporated in 1956, we are a local chapter of the Canadian Association of Community Living and Community Living Manitoba. In 1965, Inclusion Westman founded what is now known as COR Enterprises, which is now a separate organization providing day services and vocational training and work to adults with developmental disabilities. Brandon Community Options, a residential service incorporated in 1980, is also a spin-off of Community Living Brandon.
Our current name Inclusion Westman reflects the belief that everyone has the right to live a fully inclusive life within the community: to live, to learn, to work, to participate, and to enjoy retirement.
Our Vision and Mission
Our vision is to create a community that fosters full inclusion, participation, and acceptance of every individual living with an intellectual disability and embraces the individual’s right to make choices, grow, learn, and share the experiences of an inclusive lifestyle.
Inclusion Westman supports, advocates for, promotes, and facilitates the full participation, inclusion, and acceptance of people who live with an intellectual disability in our community.
