Working for a Community for All:

We work to ensure that people with disabilities can participate actively as members of the community. The North Shore Disability Resource Centre (NSDRC) provides programs and services based on the belief that healthy vibrant communities are inclusive communities, free of barriers to participation.

We directly serve over 450 individuals through our residential and community based programs. Our Information and Advocacy Program receives over 1,400 calls a year and provides programs and services to people with disabilities, their families, friends and networks on the North Shore.

This is the Story of a Civil Rights Movement



And THE WINNER of the first ever NSDRC Poster Contest is……


An intense blue background holds a winding path of neutral green-grey and a large building labelled "school". A line of green trees dot the horizon.

We called Kayla this morning and she was very happy to hear the news!
The theme of the contest was “What Inspires You?”. Kayla’s obvious enthusiasm for school, and her cheerful use of colour won praise from the judges. Kayla’s poster will be published as the cover of our Annual General Report this year, and she will also receive a gift certificate. Congratulations Kayla!!

We had 16 wonderful entries altogether, and picking a winner was hard. Click here to see all the “inspirational” art work.


NEW! Information in Farsi!


With thanks to the Lynn Valley Lions for their donation, we were able to translate our  NSDRC Brochure into Farsi! In addition we were able to translate the BC Coalitions PWD Help Sheet 12, which will be of great use for explaining the complications of applying for Persons with Disability Income Assistance to those who speak Farsi.
