The BC Coalition of People with Disabilities was founded upon the belief that:

  • people with disabilities want and are entitled to equal opportunities in all the activities and privileges that other Canadians take for granted
  • full inclusion of people with disabilities within our communities is a fundamental necessity for a diverse, productive and economically vibrant social environment
  • people with disabilities have the right to expect equality, fair treatment and respect.

Because of these beliefs, the purposes of the BC Coalition of People with Disabilities are:

  • to use education, advocacy and special projects to work toward the dissolution of the physical, attitudinal and systemic barriers in our society that deny us equal opportunities
  • to provide a strong coherent voice for the cross-disability communities in B.C.
  • to share information with and support other self-help disability organizations with common goals, and
  • to carry out our mission and projects within a self-help model
