Our History In Brief

Beginning in 1981, the International Year of the Disabled, a series of successful projects were developed to review and define the concept of independent living in Calgary.

In 1984, the Calgary Association for Independent Living (CAIL) was created as a consumer controlled, non-profit society. After initially being involved with the Joshua Committee Demonstration Project and being the driving force behind brokerage and its concept acceptance in Calgary, CAIL concentrated on its core programs.

In 1991, CAIL officially changed its name to the Independent Living Resource Centre of Calgary to reflect its association and membership in the Canadian Association for Independent Living Centres.
