Information, Referral and Support Program

This program is available to all Territorial residents regardless of where they live, or the type of disability. Enquiries come from people with disabilities, family members, friends, governments departments or other non-profit organizations. People may self refer to this program. A formal diagnosis is not required. A toll-free number is available in order for all Territorial residents to access this program free of charge.

How we can help:

  • Providing information about disabilities and related services currently available in the NWT
  • Linking clients with existing services
  • Assisting clients to apply for disability related programs such as CPP Disability, Private Long Term Disability, Income Support and Learning Supports for Persons with Disabilities
  • Attending meeting or appeals related to disability issues as a neutral third party or advocate if required
  • Writing letters of support
  • Researching programs they may qualify for and providing a referral if required
