A message from the Chair

In 2023, the Learning Disabilities Association of Canada (LDAC) celebrated 60 years of supporting individuals with learning disabilities (LDs), promoting inclusive practices and advocating for equitable opportunities.  A heartfelt thank you to all our donors, sponsors, regional and local partners, volunteers and staff for their unwavering support and dedication.

This past year was also marked by several accomplishments as we continued to raise awareness about LD and improve support and access to appropriate resources and services:

  • We released Born to be ME!: 15 portraits of perseverance with learning disabilities, our third original children’s book featuring true stories of Canadians who succeeded with a LD. Over 10,000 copies of our 3-book series are in circulation.
  • LDAC’s annual conference, “Empowering inclusion: Legal accommodations for learning disabilities”, brought together renowned experts and provided invaluable insights to LD advocates, educators and other professionals.
  • We continued to provide national leadership in the shaping of public policy and federal legislation, including a submission for Federal Bill C-323 to ensure disability is defined as visible and invisible, as well as a submission to CSA-OSC – Corporate Government Disclosure (board diversity).
  • LDAC is a community of communities with 40 service points across Canada, 2,835 newsletter subscribers and 3,500 subscribers on social media.

As we move through 2024, we are committed to continue driving measurable change in communities across Canada and improving access to support and services for all those with learning disabilities.  Our initiatives include building the capacity of our community network, raising awareness through various campaigns, and conducting a national survey to create an updated portrayal of the lives of Canadians with LDs for informed decision-making, advocacy and resource allocation.

On behalf of LDAC, I would like to sincerely thank our donors, sponsors, ambassadors and volunteers for helping us advance our mission of creating a more inclusive Canada, where individuals with learning disabilities have equal opportunities to reach their potential and thrive in their communities.

Learning disabilities are not a barrier to success, they are a challenge to overcome.Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those living with a learning disability.

Thank you for standing with us.
