Connect 4 Lie in the last 6 year has been helping people with various disabilities, grown and gain independence through their disability. 

There are over 4 million people in Canada living with disabilities, accounting for roughly 14% of the population. Approximately 2 million of these individuals reside in Ontario, and although most of them are more than capable, statistics show that the majority of individuals with disabilities remain unemployed and under educated.

Add to that the stagnating rates of ODSP (Ontario Disability Support Program), we see an urgent and ongoing need to accommodate this fraction of the population by providing the proper access to education and training.

Thus, these capable individuals can begin to lead more purposeful lives and become participating members of society. Unfortunately, the needs of individuals with disabilities are not being adequately serviced within Ontario. A lack of funding is the primary cause for this inadequacy.

We find the programs that are available are often expensive and already have extensive waiting lists. These barriers have made it difficult to reach the growing number of individuals living with disability to provide beneficial, and sometimes necessary, programs and services.
