History of NSILC
NSILC is one of 25 centres across Canada that promotes the independence of people with disabilities. NSILC began in 1991 with a small reference group of Saskatoon residents with disabilities and is associated with Independent Living Canada. The Centre was incorporated in April 1995 and opened for business in October 1995, with only an outdated computer and a tiny space in another's office.
From the beginning, the Centre has established itself as a single, convenient source of information for people with disabilities. Whether it is someone with multiple sclerosis looking for a support group, a paraplegic looking for a wheelchair, or someone looking for legal advice, the Centre directs people to the services they need. However, they do not act as an advocate for groups of people, nor do they take a stand on political issues.
NSILC is constantly expanding and growing to ensure that the services needed by the community are services that we or another organization provides. We now have many programs and resources available and in the very near future, we hope to be able to provide the community with a greater number of opportunities.
