Help Us to Keep Helping Others

The Niagara Centre for Independent Living is cross-disability, meaning it provides assistance to any person with any disability. A non-profit, community-based charity, NCIL is a community resource available to consumers, their family and friends, other service providers and to the community. We actively work to facilitate the full integration and participation of persons with disabilities into society, and believe that it is people with disabilities themselves who are best able to decide their future.
