Reflecting on Community Inclusion Month 2023

A month has passed in a flash and we had a wonderful Community Inclusion Month at CVS. As we reflect on an important month for us at CVS, we are happy to have been united with so many people across our community who are looking to spread the message of inclusion in their daily lives.

Here are some highlights from the month:

  1. The Tri-City Newsletter Series – in partnership with The Tri-City News, we launched four articles into the public that discussed key elements of what inclusion is in our community – Inclusive Employment, Inclusive Housing, Social Enterprises, and Giving Back to Our Communities.
  2. CVS Open House – on October 18th CVS hosted an open house and we had a wonderful time. It was a great afternoon and was lovely to open our doors to the public to celebrate Inclusion Month.
  3. DisDaBomb Bath Bomb Making Workshops – on October 28th, our social enterprise, DisDaBomb hosted its 1st ever bath bomb making workshop. It was a lot of fun and everyone had a great time making Halloween-inspired bath bombs that looked great while having loads of fun.
  4. Attended The Chamber of Commerce Inclusive Growth Dialogue Series hosted by The Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce and The Canadian Chamber of Commerce – this was a great opportunity for us to get out into the community and learn more of the great work many employers are doing to be more inclusive across the Tri-Cities and Greater Vancouver Area.
