What We Do?

We Believe that Everyone
is Entitled to a Meaningful Life

At DANI, we work with families and caregivers who need support for adults with disabilities. Our incredible staff and customized programs help our participants build and strengthen essential skills, while our social enterprise businesses create employment opportunities so those skills can be actively applied.


Our programs put a strong emphasis on person-centered planning. Our dedicated staff members work closely with individuals and families to develop individualized, goal-directed plans in order to empower our participants.

Social Enterprise

Our seven social enterprise businesses at DANI provide vocational training and paid positions for our adults with disabilities. All the profits are funneled back into the programs so we can continue supporting our participants. 


Virtual Inclusive Learning Academy (VILA) is an online learning platform, being developed in partnership with the Future Skills Centre at Ryerson University.
