Council of Canadians with Disabilities (CCD)
This organization, founded in 1976, is Canadaís largest group for people
with disabilities. The CCD aims to ensure people with disabilities have
the same rights as everyone, in basic needs, employment and education.
The Councilís membership includes consumer groups at the national and
provincial levels. NEADS is a member group of CCD and has a seat at its
council table. Many of its provincial member groups are profiled in this
guide. The CCDís advocacy projects have made the concerns of people
with disabilities known both at home and across the globe. The organization
has achieved success protecting disability rights in the Charter and
the Canadian Human Rights Act, and provides interventions for people
with disabilities in key court cases focusing on accommodation and privacy.
