Disability Resources in Alberta

We have been supporting people living with disabilities in Canada for over 35 years. Our clients have been denied their disability benefits but are not able to work – their insurance companies have turned their backs on them, leaving them to fend for themselves. Our long term disability insurance lawyers can help if you have been denied LTD benefits, starting with a free consultation.

We have compiled this list of disability support resources from conversations with our clients, who have shared organizations that have made a difference in their lives. We hope this list can be of help to those who need more support.
