missionThe Council engages in advocacy, systems change and capacity building for people with developmental disabilities and their families in order to:

  • Support people with disabilities in taking control of their own lives
  • Ensure access to goods, services, and supports
  • Build inclusive communities
  • Pursue a cross-disability agenda
  • Change negative societal attitudes towards people with disabilities

In so doing we will bring about benefits to individuals with disabilities other than developmental disabilities and, indeed, to all people.
