Community Living Month

Inclusion, Possibilities to Shine Brightly on May 6, 2021

Towns and cities across Ontario, Grimsby, Lincoln, and West Lincoln, will be a little brighter on the evening of May 6th, 2021. That’s because buildings and structures in communities across the province will be illuminated in blue and green as part of the annual Shine a Light on Community Living campaign. The nighttime spectacle, which includes the lighting of the CN Tower and Community Living – Grimsby, Lincoln and West Lincoln’s Administration building (191 South Service Road, Grimsby) is one of many events taking place in support of Community Living Month that will foster awareness around the importance of inclusion for people who have an intellectual disability and their families.

“Through our work and that of other Community Living organizations and their communities, opportunities are being created every day for people who have an intellectual disability to participate actively, whether that’s at work, with their friends, or wherever else they choose to be,” said France Vaillancourt, Executive Director. 

On Thursday May 6, we are encouraging our staff, our community partners and people supported to wear green and blue in support of Community Living Month and to raise further awareness about what we do.

The administration buildings for many of Community Living Ontario’s member organizations will cast blue and green shadows on May 6th. Previously, the Toronto sign in Nathan Phillips Square, City Hall in Kingston, and Fort Erie’s Peace Bridge have been illuminated in support of Community Living, as well as many municipal offices, banks, and restaurants across Ontario.

The CN Tower illumination will begin at sunset; however, the lighting won’t become fully visible until the sky darkens sufficiently approximately 30 minutes later. As it does every night, a standard light show will run for eight minutes at the top of every hour. The lighting will conclude at sunrise.

Friends of Community Living are encouraged to participate in the campaign by posting their photos to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media channels using the hashtag #shinealightonCL.
