The board ensures that person-centred philosophies and best practices are prevalent in the decision-making process. This year, DCLS celebrates 60 years of services. As the programs and services have grown and evolved, the board has continued to engage and build positive relationships with the community and other stakeholders to ensure that the organization represents the unique interests, perspectives, and expectations of stakeholders, as appropriate. ”
