Our Mission

Alberta Disabilities Forum speaks with a united voice on issues that are important to our member organizations.

Our Values

People with disabilities, diverse needs and backgrounds are contributing members of society, with equal rights and responsibilities.

People with disabilities require to be fully informed about issues that affect them and their families.

People with disabilities are entitled to supports and choices which enable them to fully participate in their communities as caring members of society.

People with disabilities must have a determining voice in the design and delivery of the programs and services they require.

Resolution of issues affecting people with disabilities will benefit both people with disabilities and society as a whole.

Our Story

In 1993, united by a strong desire to improve the lives of people with disabilities, leaders from 30 Alberta-based disability organizations formed a coalition called Speaking Out: Fairness for Albertans with Disabilities. By coming together, these groups spoke with one voice about the issues faced by Albertans with disabilities. The group was committed to educating the province’s decision-makers about disability issues.
