The RCD is a grass root organization run by people with disabilities for people with disabilities. Every year close to 28,000 Canadians with disabilities, their families, communities and stakeholders benefit from our support and services across the Lower Mainland.
We take a cross and multi-disability, self-directed and inclusive approach. We support Independent Living (IL) for persons with disabilities. IL is not a special interest; IL is mainstream and serves entire communities. IL principles and practices are based on human dignity and individual rights for all, enabling and empowering access and adaptation; not maintenance, institutionalization and lack of control. IL is about people – all people.
