Welcome to FindSupport BC, the province’s first comprehensive and searchable online disability resource database, brought to you by the Family Support Institute. FindSupport BC houses more than 1000 governmental and non-governmental resources in almost every region of British Columbia.
The database is a central access point for locating programs and activities in your region from assistive technology, recreation, and housing options to funding, financial security, and programs of the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD), and Community Living British Columbia (CLBC), Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation (MSDSI) and many other supports and services. The first of its kind, this searchable database is easy to use with information written in plain language.
FindSupport BC has just been launched! This site has taken us almost 3 years to have coded and developed and we are so pleased that it is finally here! We are excited to invite community to add to the database by clicking “Suggest A Resource” if you find we have missed anything at all. We know this is a big job, and we have missed things. We need your help to continue to add to this fabulous resource and let us know if there are errors or things missing. This is a community journey! FindSupport BC is at www.findsupportbc.com.
