Niagara Centre for Independent Living (NCIL)

The Niagara Centre for Independent Living is Niagara's only cross-disability organization. Consumer-run and consumer-driven, we support any person with any disability, through a wide range of programs and services in all areas of Niagara.

As a fully accredited member of Independent Living Canada, NCIL is one of 27 centres which exist to promote the full participation of persons with disabilities as citizens.

In 2013 we will celebrate 25 years of proudly meeting community needs through innovative programs, successful community partnerships and effective public education.

"I have found self-managing wonderful! I now know that I can get up when I want, I can decide who I want to help me in and out of my bath, I don't have to worry about having so many people in my home from so many different agencies."
- 26-year-old woman living with children

Program puts more people with disabilities in control

The Direct Funding Program is being expanded to allow more Ontarians with disabilities to live independently in their homes.
