The Active Living Alliance for Canadians with a Disability (ALACD) developed a variety of valuable resources that provide insight into inclusive programs, environments and services. Many of these are available at no cost to the general public, while larger projects are available to members.

Physical activity is important to quality of life for all Canadians. Community events provide a perfect opportunity to promote physical activity. Fit for All provides tips to ensure events include people with disabilities.

Tip Sheets Provide Information about Disabilities and Conditions to Help Leaders in the Physical Activity, Recreation and Sport Sectors Be Inclusive

The Active Living Alliance for Canadians with a Disability has collected a number of stories about how Canadians with disabilities participate in physical activity, sport and recreation. Their passion will inspire you and give you ideas about how to embrace physical activity in your own lives.
Diabetes is a condition in which the body cannot produce an important hormone called insulin. Insulin is produced in the pancreas. People with diabetes do not make enough insulin in their bodies or they have trouble using the insulin that their bodies produce. When your body lacks insulin or you cannot properly use the insulin your body does produce, you can develop many serious health conditions.
A resource for parents of children and youth with a disability: The Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Children and Youth (ages 5-17 years) are the first evidence-based guidelines to address the whole day. Developed by a number of leading Canadian and international experts, the Guidelines address physical activity, sedentary behaviour and sleep in the right amounts over a 24-hour period.
The Language of Disability

Language and the words we use change our perceptions and how we interact with each other. While many of us are familiar with the Golden Rule, that encourages treating someone the way you wish to be treated, perhaps we should, instead, consider treating people as THEY wish to be treated.

In Her Words

Canadian girls and women consistently participate in recreational sport at lower rates than boys and men regardless of income level, education, culture, or geography1.
