Find a Navigator

There are many ways to get a Navigator to help you or your child plan for adulthood.

3 Steps to Getting a Navigator 

Step 1

You can call a Navigator yourself at 1 855 356-5609.

You can also get someone to call for you. This is called a referral, and you can ask for one through our online planning tool called Collaborate:

Apply for a Referral 

To apply for a referral, you will need:

  •  A completed consent form (PDF)
  • A diagnostic assessment or assessment summary form completed by:
    • A psychologist or a psychological associate registered with the College of Psychologists, or
    • A school psychologist certified by the BC Association of School Psychologists

Submit your referral documents through the Collaborate web system. You will get an email when your referral has been accepted. A Navigator will get in touch with the client directly.

If you don’t have access to Collaborate and would like to make a referral, call 1 855 356-5609.

Make a Referral

You can refer an eligible young person to a Navigator if you are a:

  • School teacher
  • CLBC Facilitator
  • MCFD worker
  • DAA worker
  • Health clinic worker

We will contact you and ask for permission to collect information for your new file. This is called a consent.  

Step 2

Your Navigator will connect you to Community Living BC (CLBC), which will then let us know if you are eligible. We need to connect with CLBC because we are partners who work together to help you.

Step 3

If you are eligible for CLBC services, you can begin working with a Navigator.

Navigators work with you and your family to make a plan that’s all about you.

With a Navigator, you can:

  • Identify your future goals
  • Talk about if you want to go to school or find a job
  • Plan where you want to live
  • Discuss hobbies and activities you want to do
  • Bring together any supports you might already have
  • Find government and community services that are right for you
  • Share your story with other people who can help
