Our Vision

Our Mission

Citizens With Disabilities - Ontario (CWDO) actively promotes the rights, freedoms and responsibilities of persons with disabilities through community development, social action, and member support and referral.  Our primary activity is public education and awareness about the social and physical barriers that prevent the full inclusion of persons with disabilities in Ontario.

  3. Educate the public and decision makers about issues that affect people with disabilities
  4. Write briefs
  5. Make presentations
  6. Participate in events to raise awareness
  7. Host a booth at People in Motion and other Expos highlighting accessibility
  8. Provide equipment for members to participate in IDEAL Conference sessions.

Donate to CWDO

CWDO is a not-for-profit organization. We do not have charitable status at this time, and therefore, cannot issue tax receipts. 

Your contributions to continue our work are gratefully accepted, and put to good use.  You can make a contribution in any amount you choose, through PayPal. There is no charge to you for using their service, and it is very secure.

Please consider making a contribution to CWDO to help us help you remove barriers to full participation.

Together we are stronger!
