CILT is a consumer-controlled, community-based resource organization. We help people with disabilities to learn Independent Living skills and integrate into the community.
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.
As per CILT's Human Right's Policy, CILT strives to be an organization that is free from discrimination and harassment for all members of the CILT community, as well as the broader community that we serve and of which we are a part. CILT is committed to providing reliable, high quality service and information. Callers contacting CILT will be spoken to with respect, and in turn, we expect the same. CILT employees are permitted to terminate any call that becomes abusive. Abusive calls will be reported to CILT Management.
Covers the regions of Durham, Haliburton, Northumberland, Peterborough, Victoria, Halton, Peel, East York, North York, York, Scarborough and Toronto.
The Direct Funding Program is being expanded to allow more Ontarians with disabilities to live independently in their homes.
