Living Britain - History and Financial Structure - Netflix
CLBC was incorporated July 1, 2005 and assumed the policy, budgetary, contractual and operational responsibility for the delivery of community living services to children with special needs and adults with developmental disabilities and their families. On April 1, 2009, policy and budgetary responsibility for all community living services to children with special needs was transferred to the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) and on October 31, 2009, full operational and contractual responsibility for these services was assumed by the MCFD including the transfer of the related regional staff and support infrastructure. In February 2010 CLBC introduced a new program called the Personalized Supports Initiative. The Personalized Supports Initiative provides services to adults who do not have a developmental disability but have significant limitations in adaptive functioning and have a diagnosis of either fetal alcohol spectrum disorder or autism spectrum disorder. CLBC provides its program services through contractual arrangements with individuals and non-profit and private agencies throughout the province, through direct funding to families, and through the operation of the Provincial Assessment Centre. Management of CLBC’s contractual relationships and the planning and support for individuals and their families is conducted through offices in eleven Quality Service areas and seventeen Community Living Centres distributed around the province of BC, supported by corporate offices in Vancouver. CLBC has an operating budget of approximately $825 million. 93% of CLBC’s expenditures go toward contracted and direct program services to supported individuals. Funding for CLBC operations is provided by contributions from the Province of British Columbia, recoveries from MCFD for expenditures on staff and services to support children with special needs, recoveries from health authorities relating to supported individuals with health related issues and miscellaneous income and recoveries. The Community Living Authority Act mandates that CLBC not operate at a deficit without the prior approval of the Minister.
