Thunder Bay

ILRC Thunder Bay

ILRC Thunder Bay strives to provide a broad range of comprehensive services through programs to persons with disabilities as well as education and inclusion support to our broader community and region. Our focus is the promotion and adherence to the Independent Living Philosophy (IL). We do not so much believe in doing for others, as we do in educating others to do for themselves. This is the spirit of IL in our Centre and community. We are proud members of the nationally based Independent Living Canada and are thus part of a national network of similar Independent Living Centres throughout all the provinces of Canada.

"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
