What’s happening at Community Living Fort Erie
OUR NEW VAN IS HERE!!!
Thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation &
Community Living Fort Erie Volunteers!
Through a granting partnership with the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) otf.ca and the Community Living Fort Erie Fundraising Team we now have a beautiful new van.
Community Living Fort Erie was granted $38,500.00 from OTF towards the purchase of a new wheel chair accessible van and our volunteers raised the additional $14,000.00 required.
This van will help to promote the active participation of the people we support in our community. Barrier free transportation will allow us to support more active lifestyles in all of our programs. Due to this funding partnership we expect to make a significant difference in our community and in the lives of the people who receive service.
Please join us June 25, 2019 at our AGM where we will celebrate and recognize the contribution that has been made to our organization through this grant.

Immediately following the flag raising people walked down Garrison Road to heighten awareness of the importance of including people with intellectual challenges in all aspects of community life.
This is known as the “March for Inclusion”.
This annual event is organized by the Advocates in Motion. The group was formed by representatives and people who receive support from Community Living~Fort Erie in 2010.
Terry Sampson, President of the Advocates In Motion (AIM), helps to organize the event with other AIM Committee Members. “This March is to make the Community aware that people with intellectual challenges have the same rights as everyone else and have a voice they’d like to have heard”, stated Sampson. The fifth annual March for Inclusion took place Friday May 1st, 2015
