150 Years of Inclusion eBook

This timeline ebook was created to introduce the history and evolution of the Community Living movement in New Brunswick. Within the ebook you will see the various progressions of understanding surrounding New Brunswickers who have an intellectual disability. This understanding begins in the 1850s and continues through to 2017. This is a collection of historical documents, photos, images and videos. In 1957, the New Brunswick Association for Community Living (NBACL), a provincial nonprofit, was created to support individuals with an intellectual disability to be fully included in all aspects of New Brunswick society. Within this ebook you will also find the history and evolution of NBACL. Senior parents who formed the Community Living movement share their stories about how exclusion and segregation impacted their families and why they chose to fight for their children to be included in society. This timeline will help us understand the treatment and policies regulating the lives of those with an intellectual disability and their families as well as see how NBACL progressed and grew over the last 60 years.
