Our Programs

To contribute to our vision of an inclusive and accessible society where people with disabilities are valued equally and participate fully, the Independent Living Centres across Canada offer four programs.

Peer support

Peer support is designed to provide opportunities for people with disabilities to share their knowledge and lived experiences. Peer Support also affords individuals the opportunity to reduce isolation, to develop leadership skills, and gives assistance to individuals in exercising their rights and responsibilities. Peer support can be offered individually or in a group, and can be provided on an ongoing and/or in a crisis-situation in an environment of mutual respect and trust.

Research & community

Information is the key to having choices, making decisions, and learning to take risks. The Information and Networking core theme promotes the Independent Living philosophy to consumers, their families, friends and support networks, community and governments by providing clear, accurate and up to date information that meets individual needs.
