We encourage settlers to visit https://native-land.ca/ to learn more about the traditional territories on which you live.
DABC would also like to highlight our community and Access RDSP program partner Indigenous Disability Canada (IDC)/the British Columbia Aboriginal Network on Disability Society (BCANDS). Indigenous people have higher rates of disability and poverty and the work they do to support Indigenous people with disabilities is so important.
