We are an alliance of academics, not-for-profit service providers, advocacy groups, administrators and family members of persons with an intellectual disability who are working towards developing a population-level database of information about Nova Scotians living with an intellectual disability.

Individuals living with intellectual disability and their families, service and advocacy organizations, government officials, and researchers have identified the development and use of a database profiling the health and social service needs of Nova Scotians with intellectual disability as a priority.

We invite you to browse through our site to learn more about the project and feel free to contact us for further information.
