Welcome to VADSociety.ca

The Voice of Albertans with Disabilities actively promotes full participation in society and provides a voice for Albertans with disabilities.

Our Logo

The original logo

VAD's original logo, created in the mid-1970s, depicts an oak tree with roots reaching deep into the earth. The tree is a symbol of our potential, represented by the acorn, and our strength, represented by the fully grown oak. It reflects our growth from consumer grassroots input to full participation in the decision-making process.

Today's logo

VAD's current logo, developed in 2016, is colourful and bold, reflecting how strong and proud we are. The colours—bright yellow and warm purple—were chosen for their good contrast and visibility. The energy radiating from a human hand shows the power we hold—focusing on ability rather than disability.

The hand logo

Sometimes the hand section of our logo is used separately, accompanied by our corporate motto "Together, We Hold the Power." This motto reiterates VAD's commitment to our belief that by bringing forward a unified voice we will successfully create positive change for people with disabilities in Alberta.
