In 2019, ACDS developed a Vision and Impact Framework with three principles that we believe are foundational to impactful and sustainable programs to help Albertans with disabilities participate in and contribute to vibrant communities: respectful relationships, impactful investment, and seamless systems. Within these three principles, we have highlighted seven priorities to guide our advocacy work for the Community Disability Services sector for the foreseeable future. We have also identified how we can help achieve these priorities through corresponding collaborative opportunities with the Government of Alberta. These priorities were derived from various, diverse engagement mechanisms we use to communicate with ACDS members and the CDS sector. They will be evaluated and adjusted as appropriate based on the sector's evolving issues, program developments, and policy opportunities.
