The British Columbia Aboriginal Network on Disability Society, or as more commonly known, BCANDS, is an award winning, Indigenous not for profit, charitable Society serving the unique and diverse disability and health resource / support service needs of Indigenous peoples across Canada. BCANDS is a “stand alone” organization and is one of the only organizations of its type in Canada. BCANDS is in Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council. In 2021, BCANDS will celebrate its 30th year of successfully delivering Indigenous disability and health programs and services across Canada.
BCANDS provides a vast array of services to eligible individuals, families and organizations, both within Indigenous communities and urban and rural centres. If you are an Indigenous person living with a disability, or a community or organization requiring disability or health information and support services, BCANDS may be able to assist.
