Group Name: Centre for Independent Living in Toronto (CILT) – Peer Support
Description: CILT is a consumer-controlled, community-based resource organization. We help people with disabilities to learn Independent Living skills and integrate into the community. (Please note: CILT is a resource agency and does not do any political, systemic or group advocacy!)
CILT operates on the philosophy of the Independent Living movement which was developed in response to traditional rehabilitation services models. CILT’s aim is to develop and implement dignified social services that empower individuals rather than create dependencies. We encourage people with disabilities to take control of their own lives by exercising their right to examine options, make choices, take risks and even make mistakes.
The Peer Support Program includes:
- Diners Club
- Peer Support Workshops and Resources
- Opportunities for peer networking
- Over-the-phone support
- Volunteer Program
Where: 365 Bloor St. E., Suite 902 | Toronto, ON M4W 3L4
