Voice of Albertans with Disabilities (VAD) came into existence in 1973.
Two organizations realized the importance of fostering an attitude amongst people with disabilities, encouraging
their personal participation in overcoming social and physical barriers to their full participation in society.
Since 1973, Voice of Albertans with Disabilities has been a provincial, cross disability organization of individuals
with physical, mental, sensory, learning and intellectual disabilities. We are dedicated to improving the quality of
life of people with disabilities through our efforts, services and programs. Over the years we have consulted and
collaborated with like-minded organizations on many important projects that impact the daily lives of individuals
with disabilities. All over the province, people with disabilities are making their voices heard and Voice of
Albertans with Disabilities is an enthusiastic partner in this movement.
