The NWT Disabilities Council envisions that all individuals living with disability have equal access to full citizenship, as guaranteed under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, toward the achievement of a self-determined, fulfilling, and meaningful life.
The NWT Disabilities Council exists to educate, advocate, and support the self-determination of all individuals with disabilities.
Everything that the NWT Disabilities Council does reflects our six core values.
Every person with a disability has the right to respect, dignity,
individual autonomy, and full citizenship.
We believe in equity, fairness, inclusion, and accessibility for all.
We believe that individuals with a disability and their families have the right to be empowered and free to be self-determining.
We recognize that individuals with a disability are experts on their own life.
We support the autonomy of Indigenous communities to direct supports to
community members with disabilities.
We honour the wisdom of all cultures in all of our work.
