The Active Living Alliance for Canadians with a Disability (ALACD) recognizes the importance of partnering with provincial and territorial affiliates across Canada to improve recreation, physical activity, and sport opportunities for individuals with a disability.
Partnering with provincial/territorial associations creates a unique link between The Active Living Alliance, its affiliates, members, supporters, researchers and stakeholders. Our goal is to support all organizations and groups who are striving to ensure that inclusion is a cultural norm in communities across Canada!

- Establishing a strong provincial/territorial presence in the field;
- Reaching community organizations that strive to ensure the inclusion of individuals with a disability in recreation, physical activity and sport opportunities;
- Facilitating opportunities to provide capacity-building activities to increase inclusion;
- Revitalizing the All Abilities Welcome network of speakers; and
- Strengthening our advocacy efforts.
The Active Living Alliance will support the Affiliates by:
- Offering capacity-building initiatives in the area of inclusion;
- Providing support to address the policy considerations and directives in a number of national strategies and policies;
- Providing several resources, training sessions, membership benefits and individualized instruction and consultation related to inclusion.
Stay tuned over the next few months as we present our provincial/territorial Affiliates!
