Those individuals requiring support may request service delivery privately or be referred through alternative sources such as Alberta Health Services, Persons with Developmental Disabilities or W.C.B. The referral source is often contingent on the funding source.

Non Residential Programs

As a provider to shared accommodation situations, I.C.E. has supported the concept of empowerment of the consumer. As such, I.C.E. encourages the client
or guardian to be as fully involved, to the best of their abilities, in planning daily living, community activities, goal planning, staff evaluation and
program feedback. I.C.E. administers budgets, staff hiring, training and supervision in conjunction with the client and/or their guardian.
