People with an intellectual disability in Canada are disproportionately homeless, living in poverty, subject to drastically limited housing choices, and often encounter issues of discrimination in housing.

Our vision is that all people with an intellectual disability are fully included in their communities, have full access to health care and other public services, and are safe from violence and abuse.
