Recognizing TYDE Partners

The TYDE Project is comprised of key partners from government and community stakeholders committed to improving the employment outcomes of transitioning youth with intellectual disabilities (ID) and/or autism spectrum (ASD) disorder in BC. This important and timely initiative aligns with Provincial priorities to enhance and foster the inclusion and citizenship of youth with disabilities transitioning from high school to adult life: e.g., Accessibility 2024 (http://www.gov.bc.ca/accessibility), the Presidents Group (http://ow.ly/Azma30acMCK), and the Minister’s Council o Employment and Accessibility (http://ow.ly/CjgJ30acMTd). We are grateful for the genuine collaboration and investment of our TYDE Partners.
