Ms. Parker is enrolled in an eight-month course at the University of British Columbia designed to help people with intellectual disabilities find their own way. Launched in September, the Canadian Inclusive Lives Learning Initiative (CILLI) is a pilot program in which participants learn about decision-making, employment, financial literacy, legal matters and how to access outside resources. Throughout the course, which wraps up in June, Ms. Parker will devote about 10 hours a month to online learning modules and telephone sessions with facilitators, joined by her father, Michael Parker.
