ILNS champions the right to live independently and supports individuals in their pursuit of independence.


Since 1992, ILNS has supported Nova Scotians with disabilities through programs and services that promote Independent Living (IL). ILNS supports consumers (people with disabilities): live their lives the way they want, stay in control of decisions that affect them, find the services and contacts they need, get information that is useful and clear, break through barriers that are in the way, and develop their skills.

ILNS is unique in Nova Scotia’s landscape, because we support all disabilities and we live the philosophy: a Board of Directors manages our organization and most of them have disabilities themselves.
