Our digital journey as an organization is focused on the needs of our community members and visitors to provide them with the best possible online experience.

Our goal is to make our website accessible to everyone in our Abilities Centre community. We want to hear from you about your experience on our website, what features you like, and how we can do better. Please email us at
