LiveWorkPlay is an Ottawa-based charity formed in 1995 to support the full citizenship of people with intellectual disabilities. The organization directly supports 70 individuals between the ages of 14 and 50 and works closely with family members, more than 100 volunteers, and partners in government, business, and the non-profit sector. LiveWorkPlay practices are strongly influenced by a core belief in community-based solutions as the path to citizenship and inclusion.
In recent years the organization has made significant adjustments in service delivery, utilizing a variety of resources including funding from the developmental services system to support community-based solutions (homes, jobs, and relationships). LiveWorkPlay is also committed to self-advocacy and self-determination for people with intellectual disabilities as outlined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and supports the development and growth of independent movements such as People First.
