About the Centre

The Independent Living Resource Centre of Calgary is one of the few agencies in the city serving complex cross disabilities - and is dedicated to promoting and enabling all persons with disabilities 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.

Our Success Stories

From Arlene, and her son Shawn: "The LEARN program at the ILRCC has been wonderful. Shawn especially loves to attend and participate in the Creative Voices class with Bryan Bailey on Tuesday afternoons. Shawn also participates in most of the daily summer activities put on by LEARN.
The volunteers and staff with the LEARN program are kind and dedicated to our city’s differently-abled adults. I am thankful for programs like LEARN and the ILRCC that have everyone’s best interest at heart.”
