Dear PDD Individuals, Families, Guardians and Service Providers: 

On behalf of the Calgary Region Community Board, Persons with Developmental Disabilities (PDD) and

Dr. Alex Hillyard, CEO, we are writing to invite you to participate in a conversation with the Honourable

Frank Oberle, Associate Minister of Services for Persons with Disabilities.

 

You may have been aware of some of the recent public attention about the PDD program through

media story coverage and a variety of family, self-advocate and service provider community

information sessions and forums. We have been in attendance at many of these events and we have

heard your concerns.

 

To ensure that there are ongoing opportunities for information sharing and dialogue, the Calgary

Region Community Board is hosting several meetings on June 3rd and 4th. These meetings are part of

Minister Oberle’s Provincial Tour of the PDD Regions and the overall purpose of these meetings is to

share information about PDD’s vision and transformational change and to provide you with an

opportunity to ask questions.

 

In addition to the meetings with Minister Oberle on June 3rd and 4th, the Calgary Region Community

Board will be organizing a series of follow up meetings for individuals, families and guardians to share

more detailed information related to Individual Service Design and Planning, Funding Allocation

Resource Model, Supports Intensity Scale (SIS) Assessment and, PDD’s overall approach and timing of

the implementation of these activities. Please watch for this invitation to come out to you soon.

 

If you are interested in attending a June 3rd or 4th session with the Honourable Frank Oberle, Associate
