Community Volunteers



Volunteers are a critical part of the community living movement and of our CACL federation in particular.  The involvement of volunteers helps us build fully inclusive communities and advocate for human rights for persons with intellectual disabilities and their families.

We draw our strength from our volunteers; volunteers whose passion, action and impact have sustained and defined our movement for more than 50 years, and more importantly have contributed in so many profound ways to making this country more inclusive of people with intellectual disabilities. It is our volunteer base – the grassroots of this organization - that makes CACL such a truly amazing and vibrant organization.    

As a way of acknowledging our volunteers – family members, self-advocates, friends, and professional colleagues – we share with you profiles of some of the thousands of volunteers from across the country who contribute to our federation at the local, provincial/territorial and/or national levels.
