About the Centre

The Independent Living Resource Centre of Calgary is one of the few agencies in the city serving people with disabilities - and is dedicated to promoting and enabling to achieve their own level of independence. It's our mission to provide the best possible referrals, training, programs and activities, impacting the lives of thousands throughout the community. Donations allow us to continue to offer valuable programs, and any donation made is matched by the Alberta Treasury Branch.
