Active Living Alliance for Canadians With a Disability (ALACD) Policies, Vision and Mission
The following are various ALACD policies, as well as its Vision and Mission, Goals for Action, and Guiding Principles, as at the time the ALACD ceased operations at the end of October 2015.
The ALACD promoted, supported and enabled Canadians with disabilities to lead active, healthy lives. It provided nationally coordinated leadership, support, encouragement, promotion and information to facilitate healthy, active living opportunities for Canadians of all abilities across all settings and environments.
Vision and Mission
It was in 1986, at the Jasper Talks - a national symposium on physical activity and disability - that people involved in disability and fitness issues asserted that physical activity must be an integral part of the daily lives of Canadians with disabilities. A focal point for the active living movement in Canada is the Active Living Alliance for Canadians with a Disability. We are an alliance of individuals, agencies and national associations that facilitates and coordinates partnerships among the members of its network. Any organization, community or individual who embraces our principles and goals is welcome to join the Alliance network. The network has grown to more than 500,000 contacts.
OUR VISION is a society where all Canadians lead active and healthy lives.
OUR MISSION is to enable Canadians with disabilities to lead active, healthy lives.
