Mandate for Quality: Volume III, Changing the System: An analysis of New Brunswick's approach


This is the last publication in a series intended to assist Canadians in the development of services and supports for people with intellectual disabilities in the move from institutions to more community based lifestyles (see also File no's 3060 and 3061). Volume III was written in a different, more positive context than the other two; one of change, particularly in the development and implementation of strategies for deinstitutionalisation. The volume focuses on New Brunswick - a province in the north of Canada - and examines its efforts to redesign the whole system of service provision for people with disabilities. The theory, values and philosophy and even some of the practices, have been relevant in Australia and this series is important in terms of the examples it provides of the physical and values based push for deinstitutionalisation.
