CISS’s first day program, Inlet Enterprises, was created in response to the downsizing and eventual closure of Woodlands Institution (considered a residential school for individuals and intellectual disabilities) located in New Westminster, BC. 


Over the years, Inlet has evolved into a full Community Inclusion Program supporting individuals from 40 years old to age of retirement (dependent on the person’s health and interests), in a range of community activities. The program prioritizes flexibility in order to accommodate individuals as they age, allowing for changes in the types of care and support they receive. 

By developing a personalized plan with staff, individuals are able to take part in a variety of volunteer, social, leisure, educational, and employment activities based on their own needs, interests, and goals.
