Institution Watch Newsletter for July 2020 (PDF)

The above link is a downloadable PDF version of the July 2020 issue “Institution Watch Newsletter”. The newsletter comes from a joint task force on Deinstitutionalization between People First Canada and Canadian Association for Community Living.

The newsletter is “monitoring the progress toward a vision of full community living for all persons with intellectual disabilities”.

Article 19 of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, states the right to choose residency on an equal basis with others, however institutionalization is still enforced due to isolation, segregation, and lack of control or decision-making. This article focuses on issues of institutionalization in the province of Nova Scotia.
