The heart of our program is free one-to-one assistance with provincial and federal disability benefits.
We provide an expert and respectful advocacy service. Our advocates are highly experienced in helping people with disabilities to apply for benefits or appeal the denial of benefits. We know which questions to ask, who to contact and which supporting documents are most important.
