Centre for Independent Living, known as CILT, is a consumer-controlled, community-based resource organization. We help people with disabilities learn Independent Living skills and integrate into the community.

CILT operates on the philosophy of the Independent Living movement which was developed in response to traditional rehabilitation services models. CILT's aim is to develop and implement dignified social services that empower individuals rather than create dependencies. We encourage people with disabilities to take control of their own lives by exercising their right to examine options, make choices, take risks and even make mistakes.
