|Welcome| About Us| ||
Our federally incorporated non-profit was created by the sheer determination, commitment, and the volunteer efforts of a group of professionals with disabilities. Our highest priority was to create the society while listening to and engaging fellow professionals who all echoed the conviction that we need to "get on with it" or as one of our founders stated, "We have already had decades of discussion (in regards to employment and people with disabilities). If I can do something that will help fellow professionals with disabilities deal with the barriers that I have faced all my life, I'm happy to do it."
Please help us make a difference for professionals with disabilities. Your support will help professionals with disabilities get beyond the 'decades of discussion' and take action to end their history of being under supported, underemployed, and excluded from the workforce.
You can start supporting us by spreading the word about our young non-profit. Also, if you are interested (or would like more information) in becoming a supporter, providing in-kind or financial support or participating as a volunteer, mentor, corporate, community, or public sponsor/partner, please read further on and also visit the Connect with Us section for more information and contact us. We also have a donation form for those who would like to donate.
You can also support us by joining the Canadian Association of Professionals with Disabilities online discussion group. It is one means that we are using to find and work with committed professionals with disabilities and their supporters to take on active leadership and/or support roles to build a regional and national presence.
Volunteer opportunities vary and are dependant on the regional and national needs at the time. Examples of opportunities may be regional group leader, board members, marketing, communications, journalism, list manager, event coordinator, funding, legal, accounting, human resources, volunteer management, special projects, committee work, board resource committee, knowledge/info acquisition, advocacy, board development, organizational development, strategic planning, administration, community liaison, tech and/or website development, and management, ad-hoc/advisory committees, career postings co-ordinator, online discussion group moderators, and on-call volunteering.
