About the Theme: The theme is driven by the recognition that the Community Disability Services (CDS) sector in Alberta has tremendous capacity to strengthen and elevate, through strategies such as innovation and collaboration. Now, more-than-ever—in the context of the current economic climate and ongoing workforce and funding challenges—we must look to the existing potential of the sector to help realize the possibilities to advance the sector.
