  Welcome| About Us| Contact Us| 


The Canadian Association of Professionals with Disabilities is a federally incorporated non-profit dedicated to maximizing the inclusion, job retention, and advancement of current and future professionals with disabilities.

Our non-profit is solely and permanently committed to meeting the complex and emerging concerns of professionals with disabilities.

We are a cross-disabilities based organisation and are controlled by professionals with disabilities for professionals with disabilities.

Our goals are:

  • To provide a focal point for professionals with disabilities to define, develop, and implement resources and supports that enable them to successfully participate in work and the community.

  • To increase the awareness, knowledge, understanding, and acceptance of professionals with disabilities and their capabilities.

  • To encourage professionals with disabilities to develop to their full potential and to find, retain, and advance in employment commensurate with their skills, knowledge, and abilities.

  • To highlight and address life and quality of life issues that impact and/or are impacted by the career realities that professionals with disabilities specifically face.

  • To support professionals with disabilities to participate fully in society.

  • To provide professionals with disabilities with opportunities for camaraderie, mentorship, and support.

  • To improve the disability supports, rehabilitation, education, training, and employment and career development/advancement opportunities for professionals with disabilities and for other people with disabilities who want to enter a professional career path.

The Canadian Association of Professionals with Disabilities supports professionals with disabilities no matter what their career field, title, current employment status is, or degree of success they are having in their careers. They may be just ready to begin their careers, on leave, volunteering, unemployed, employed, underemployed, part time, self employed, unable to work, on pension, on welfare, or retired. They may have acquired a disability before entering or during their careers.

We are also dedicated to building a supportive and collaborative network of individuals (with and without disabilities) and organisations who support our mandate and philosophy.

We believe that all people of all abilities should have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
