Community Living Featured in Conference Video

Community Living Upper Ottawa Valley (CLUOV) was also included in the “From Presence to Citizenship” conference video in which Dr. David Pitonyak was featuared. Dr. Pitonyak was one of four guest speakers at the Presence to Citizenship Learning Exchange, a two-day conference that discussed successful strategies for seizing opportunities and building new relationships with people that have developmental disabilities in our communities.

The learning exchange also presented a video, where individuals from the Ministry of Communities and Social Services, along with Executive Directors from Community Living agencies across Ontario, spoke about the difference their agency is making on people we support with developmental disabilities and improvements to their well-being. CLUOV Executive Director Chris Grayson is featured in this short video.
