About Us

We are a group of people living in the Elk Valley who believe that everyone should be able to participate in community life in ways of their choosing while feeling safe, included and accepted.   


CAN aims to connect community members with information that builds our understanding of what we can do to improve accessibility and inclusion for people with disabilities. 

Learning About Living With Disabilities in the Elk Valley

The Elk Valley is a great place to live but CAN believes it can make life even better by creating opportunities for people with disabilities to participate in activities of their choosing and be defined by who they are rather than what they can or can’t do.

CAN believes the Elk Valley could become known for its accessibility and creation of an environment where everyone can live to their full potential. 

People with disabilities make up 15% of the world’s population.
Let’s break down the barriers that keep us apart.
