Frequently Asked Questions
Is there an organization that represents all Canadians with disabilities?
The Council of Canadians with Disabilities (CCD) represents people with disabilities across the country. CCD works to improve the status of disabled people through the monitoring of federal legislation as it impacts on people with disabilities. The Council includes in its membership provincial groups from coast to coast, along with equality-seeking national consumer organizations of people with disabilities. CCD publishes a quarterly newsletter called “A Voice of Our Own”, and has many committees that address specific issues, including transportation, human rights and youth. NEADS is a member of CCD and sits on its national council.
