Our Story

The Independent Living Resource Centre Calgary (ILRCC) was founded in 1985 by a group of dedicated volunteers who recognized the need for an organization that could provide support and services to individuals with disabilities. The organization started as a small peer support group, but it quickly grew to become a recognized and respected resource center in the Calgary community.

Over the years, ILRCC has continued to expand its services and programs to meet the changing needs of individuals with disabilities in Alberta. Today, the organization provides a range of core programs, including referrals, workshops, courses, presentations, peer support, and youth mentorship programs, aimed at supporting individuals in achieving their level of independence.

Our Mission & Approach 

At the Independent Living Resource Centre Calgary (ILRCC), our mission is to promote and enable all persons with disabilities to achieve their level of independence. We believe that all individuals have the right to live their lives to the fullest and reach their full potential, regardless of their abilities.

Our approach to achieving this mission is based on the principles of independent living, which emphasize self-determination, choice, and control for individuals with disabilities. We strive to empower individuals with disabilities to take charge of their own lives and make decisions that align with their goals and values.
