Partners for Planning

Introducing the Partners for Planning Resource Network, a dynamic online resource for families caring for a child or adult with a disability. This new FREE resource is available on our website's homepage (www.jbacl.org) by clicking the icon like the one above! The Partners for Planning Resource Network provides families with helpful tools, information, and expertise on a range of topics relevant to creating a good life and a safe, secure future for your relative with a disability!

Click on our homepage's Partner for Planning Resource Network icon to gain access to many FREE interactive resources:

  • Live Webcasts that you can easily view from home
  • Access to informative and inspiring documentaries
  • A comprehensive learning centre filled with interactive, video-based learning modules featuring key planning tools and strategies for families
  • An online directory of lawyers, financial planners, facilitators, and accountants who specialize in disability issues.

It is never too early or too late to start planning for the future of a child living with a disability. Recognizing this, Community Living Ontario, the Ministry of Community and Social Services, and Partners for Planning have collaborated to produce this FREE, dynamic resource hub for parents and caregivers.


All of us at James Bay Association for Community Living would like to extend our thanks and appreciation
to both the United Way Cochrane-Timiskaming and Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul for their generous
donations received in 2018.

These donations made it possible for an individual we support to travel to and attend Camp Kennebec: A wonderful summer camp program geared to the needs of young people with special needs.
