Easter Seals is dedicated to fully enhancing the quality of life, self-esteem and self-determination of Canadians with disabilities.
As Canada’s largest local provider of programs, services, issues-leadership and development for the disability community, Easter Seals is dedicated to helping more than 100,000 Canadians with disabilities participate fully in society.
One of every 7 Canadians report having a disability. Statistics Canada, Participation and Activity Limitation Survey, 2006
Easter Seals provincial organizations offer transformative programs and services at the local level, the best known of which are Easter Seals camp programs.
Every year thousands of children challenge themselves while having the time of their lives at 15 Easter Seals camps nationwide.
Other services include year-round active living opportunities, as well as the provision of specialized mobility and access equipment such as mobility aids, assistive technology, adaptive computers, augmentative communication devices and adaptations to homes and vehicles for wheelchair accessibility.
Normally these assistive aids are cost prohibitive for most people and families. With help from its donors and sponsors, Easter Seals works to ensure that everyone with a disability has access to the equipment and services they need to make the most of their abilities.
