Become a part of what we do
86% of people with a disability have great attendance.

When compared to non-disabled co-workers, the majority of those with a disability had similar or better attendance.

Our membership is open to the general public, and we welcome you to get involved. With over 400 members now, we have an active group who volunteer at the centre and support various ILRC activities. However, we can always use more friendly faces, especially as we continue to expand and diversify our membership across the province.

Membership to the Independent Living Resource Centre (ILRC) in St. John’s is open to individuals who support the principles of Independent Living and the objectives of the ILRC.

To become a member of the ILRC, please complete this form. Membership is free. Note that any fields marked with a red star must be completed.

To remain a member in good standing and have voting rights at the Annual General Meeting each year, it’s best to renew your membership by March 31. Please advise on how you would like to receive your newsletter.

Contact and Member Information

As a consumer-controlled organization, we are committed to having a membership which is at least 51% persons who have disabilities. For that reason, this space is provided should you choose to self-identify as having a disability.

Statement of Support

Independent Living is about having choices, making decisions, taking risks, and taking responsibility. Independent Living is about having control over one's own life.

Independence is not measured by the quality of tasks we can perform without support, but by the quality of life we can have with support.

Mission Statement

The Independent Living Resource Centre is a consumer controlled organization committed to providing supports, resources and opportunities for empowerment, which enable persons with disabilities to make informed choices about their lives.

Correspondence Format

The ILRC uses email as its primary form of correspondence. We also provide alternative formats as listed below. Please select one:
