Who We Are

Creating Accessible Neighbourhoods (formerly Citizens for Accessible Neighbourhoods) is an organization created for people with disabilities by people with disabilities. Our founder and Executive Director is disabled. Our first board was comprised of people from a chronic pain support group. Fourteen years later and the majority of our board remains people who self-identify as having a disability. Our members have many intersecting identities and CAN recognizes and centers this in the work that we do.
