Founded in 1986 by the Independent Living Movement Membership, Independent Living Canada (formerly: Canadian Association of Independent Living Centres) represents the network of IL Member Centres at the national level. IL Canada performs several functions on behalf of Member Centres including: providing a collective voice on national issues; fostering and maintaining partnerships; building the capacity and scale of IL in Canada; and preserving the integrity and importance of IL in Canada on the national stage.
The Independent Living Philosophy calls for the integration and full participation of persons with disabilities in their communities. Member Centres must provide programs and services developed within the 4 Core Pillars of Service.
You’ll find a few here and you can contact your local IL Centre for more information on the other resources available and a representative will assist you.
