Canadian Disability Participation Project

The Canadian Disability Participation Project icon

The CDPP is an alliance of university, public, private and government sector partners working together to enhance community participation among Canadians with physical disabilities. Their focus is on employment, mobility and sport and exercise.

For employment, their goal is to design, test, and implement evidence-based practices that will increase both the number of people with disabilities who participate in the labour market, as well as the quality of participation.

For mobility, their goal is to develop a better understanding of how people with mobility impairments move about their communities, and to then use that information to design, test and implement strategies to improve both the extent and quality of participation in community mobility. 

For sport and exercise, their goal is to develop, test and implement evidence-based, best-practices to increase the number of people with disabilities who participate in sport and exercise, and to improve the quality of their participation experiences.
