About

Who we are

The North Saskatchewan Independent Living Centre (NSILC) is a non-profit, charitable, community organization. Started in 1991, NSILC is one of 25 organizations across Canada established to empower those with disabilities with the support they need to live independently.

We run programs, do local advocacy/education, and connect people to the services they need. At base, we are a community resource for anybody with a self-identified disability.

We know that our programs are only as good as who runs them. That’s why at least 51% of those who manage, and operate, our organization live with disabilities. We want our programs to be rooted in understanding, and guided by genuine community need.

We work with all people that have self-identified disabilities. Our focus is building an inclusive community and set of programs. So come by. Chat with us. Learn more about what we do and why we do it.

We also want to educate and support anybody who wants to take specific action to make society more inclusive and accessible. If you’re a small-business owner, with questions on how to make your business more accessible—come by! We’re happy to shed some light on the subject.

Our Mission
