SCI BC, in partnership with the BC Ministry of Health, have developed this online workbook to give people with disabilities the information they need to apply and, if successful in their application, manage the transition to becoming a CSIL employer.
Choice in Supports for Independent Living (CSIL)—pronounced “SEE-sul”—is an alternative way for people with disabilities in BC to receive home support services. The goal of CSIL is to provide more choice and flexibility to people with disabilities who have high-intensity care needs. CSIL employers receive funds to purchase their own home support services; they are responsible for recruiting, hiring, training, scheduling and supervising their own home support workers. Under CSIL, the person with the disability assumes the role of an employer with all of the rights and responsibilities that involves.
This resource is an evolving document and will be updated regularly. If you have any feedback on this resource please email Jennifer King firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any further questions relating to CSIL please contact our InfoLine 1-800-689-2477.
The CSIL online workbook was funded by the BC Ministry of Health.
