Providing Services for Individuals with DisAbilities & Seniors

CPLF has been dedicated to promoting dignity and life skill enhancement to Calgary's disabled population since 1989.

CPLF is committed to providing the best quality services to our individuals with disAbilities. We believe that self-sufficiency and growth within adults who experience a disAbility is achieved through community presence and active participation in gainful employment.

We provide quality support services focused on developing and enhancing a person's potential and quality of life using an individualized, client-centered approach whereby the needs of the individual are continuously assessed and support services are implemented around specific needs.


Offering full-time or part-time support in our individuals homes. Support can begin with finding our clients new homes for providing support in existing homes. Support staff can live with the individual or visit them.


Counselling for supported individuals in the comfort of their home or in a neutral location such as our offices.

Community Inclusion

Access and support in areas of recreation and social networking for the purposes for achieving our individuals goals. Healthy lifestyle and nurturing natural support in friends and family is all important activity.


Employment and Volunteer opportunities foster further independence, financial autonomy, development of transferable job skills and community involvement.

DisAbilities & Seniors
