Creating a world without barriers
More than 6.2 million Canadians have some form of a disability, and the numbers are growing.
People with disabilities still face social and physical barriers that stop them from being a part of their communities.
While we’ve made great strides towards creating an accessible and inclusive world, there’s still more work to be done.
Join us on our journey.
COVID-19 Office Closure Notice
Our hearts and thoughts go out to everyone in our communities and around the world in these trying times. Like many others, our offices are closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and will reopen when health authorities deem it safe to do so.
Our priority is the health, safety and well-being of our employees, partners, donors, supporters, people with disabilities and their family and caregivers, as well as everyone in our community.
Our staff are continuing to deliver our programs and services remotely and can be reached directly via email. You can also keep in touch with the Foundation by messaging us on social media!
“I honestly believe that my best work is in front, not behind me.
I am driven by a deep passion and need to make a difference and leave this world a little better than when I arrived.
That's what keeps me going.”
