Non-Governmental Organizations


REACH is a non-profit organization providing legal assistance and referral services to people with disabilities. It also provides education on disability and human rights issues to lawyers, people with disabilities, service providers and others.

The organization was formed in 1981, and receives approximately 5,000 calls per year from people with disabilities, on a range of issues such as housing, employment, tax matters, and abuse. REACH holds monthly seminars and annual conferences on disability issues. Although the organization primarily serves people with disabilities in Ottawa and area, it has been involved in a number of national research projects regarding the participation of people with disabilities in post-secondary education and law careers. Two publications of interest are: “Navigating Law School and Beyond,” and “Advancing Professional Opportunities and Employment Accommodations for Lawyers and Other Law Graduates With Disabilities.”
