our vision

is a world built on principles of inclusion and compassion; a world where all people recognize the benefits of building systems which foster a stronger sense of connectedness and inclusion; a world where people with disabilities and their families, can participate fully and make valuable contributions which enrich our community.

The NSDRC administration office is closed temporarily as we do our part to #flattenthecurve in the face of COVID-19.

We are all working remotely, so please contact reception@nsdrc.org with any questions and you will be directed accordingly. Stay safe!

We are working toward a "community for all."

The NSDRC provides programs and services to children, youth, adults and their families based on the belief that healthy vibrant communities are inclusive communities, free of barriers to participation.

 

The NSDRC distinguishes itself through an extraordinary team of professionals who provide exceptional and consistent individualized support to participants.

Community-Based Services

We provide one-to-one and/or group support to children and adults with disabilities and their families through a variety of programs.

 

With support from a community support worker, individuals focus on life skill development in areas identified by the participants and/or their support network.

Residential Services

Although each home is unique, the NSDRC is proud to provide a specialized residence for children and youth with disabilities.

 

The first residential program operated by the NSDRC ensured parents and families continued to be involved in their sons’ and daughters’ lives. This philosophy continues today

Information & Advocacy

We provide information about community and government programs and provide advocacy services that assist people with disabilities, their families and the community.

 

Our advocates assist clients in applying for or appealing Persons With Disabilities benefits, Canada Pension Plan Disability, and other disability-related benefits.
