Citizens With Disabilities – Ontario (CWDO) incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in May, 2005 is committed to the rights of all persons to participate fully in the civil, cultural, economic, political and social life of their communities.
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. CWDO has a number of board members, located all across Ontario.
How CWDO Operates
CWDO’s first and most powerful way of connecting with our members all across Ontario is through this website. Members can contribute to CWDO’s position papers, presentations, research and advocacy work on our website. Check out links wherever input is requested.
CWDO organizes its work and priorities through a number of committees. A great deal of discussion takes place between meetings by email. Committees are as active as their members. Committee meetings are held in virtual space on the IDEAL Conference Centre. Our supporters make the IDEAL Conference Centre free for CWDO business.
