Happy February from Langley Pos-Abilities Society
We hope that everyone had a wonderful Valentines and Family Day.
This month we are looking forward to the presentation of the Fraser Valley Cultural Diversity Awards on March 10th. Wish us luck on winning the Innovative Initiative Award!
Describing Robert Leroux in a few words
- Lover of Sushi!
Robert Leroux has been working for technology and multinational companies in the Metro Vancouver area since 1994. A graduate of Douglas College in Information Systems, he furthered his studies being trained in database software applications such as Microsoft Sql Server and Oracle.
With a background in network disaster recovery, Robert is able to guide businesses to recover from data loss and help businesses protect themselves from data loss.
Born in New Westminster, Robert moved out to Surrey then eventually to Langley in 2006. At the end of 2007 Robert broke away from corporate employment and started his own business. After twelve years of being self employed, Robert continues to enjoy watching his business grow but has some time to help out in the community from helping SEEDS (Self Employment & Entrepreneur Development Society) with their re-establishment to helping with Langley Pos-Abilities Society.
As time has gone on, Robert has transitioned from being President of Langley Pos-Abilities to Vice President due to his growing business and lack of time. This has not changed his importance in the society as he continues to mentor and support those around him.

New Horizons Grant
Langley Pos-Abilities has received a New Horizons Grant to fund a pilot project to repair personal assistive devices for those people who have no ability to obtain money to repair them. People with broken equipment are welcome to apply to be considered for this funding.
To promote our philosophy of giving a hand up, not a handout, candidates for the service are required to be part of the process and to meet the following conditions:
- There is no other funding available to repair the item.
- A written quote has been prepared by a reputable mobility aid shop.
- The appropriate forms have been completed and submitted online.
- The candidate will be expected to pay part of the repair.
- After your application has been evaluated, you will be informed of the decision.
Please contact us if you need some guidance to go through this process.
We welcome financial donations from local businesses to assist us in this endeavour. Donate online here.
What’s wrong with this picture?
This is what we have noticed in our travels.
Shout out to the City of Langley who quickly fixed this problem once they were notified of the safety hazard!
When the picture below was taken, no marking had been painted due to the rain.
