Our mission is to enhance personal choice and community participation for persons living with disabilties through advocacy support.
At Citizen Advocacy we’re not curing disease or finding answers to world peace. Our goals aren’t that lofty. In fact, we work in small and quiet ways that we believe have a hugely positive impact on those who count on us. We believe in a community that welcomes and values the participation and contribution of all its citizens, including those who live with a disability. Since 1974, Citizen Advocacy of Ottawa has supported over 2000 people with disabilities and touched the lives of many more. Because we work at an individual level, directly with the people we support, the impact is felt on a personal, as well as a community, level. Volunteer advocates help increase the self-esteem and self-confidence of a person with a disability to develop a better sense of overall health. This translates into less dependency and a reduction in the use of costly health and social services.
