Our Commitment to Accessibility

At Community Living Essex County, we are committed to ensuring that the supports and services provided by employees, students, and volunteers are offered in a manner that is based upon the principles of dignity, independence, integration and equal opportunity.


The unique advantage of the internet is that the impact of disability can be drastically reduced, by removing barriers. Thanks to the internet, barriers are removed from communication and interaction that many people may face in the physical world. Likewise – when websites are poorly designed these barriers remain.
