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


All Nova Scotians with disabilities have the ability to live a full, independent life at home, work, and play within an inclusive community.


Independent Living Nova Scotia (ILNS) supports Nova Scotians with disabilities through programs and services that promote Independent Living (IL), enabling individuals to live the way they want, stay in control of decisions that affect them, break through barriers that are in the way and develop their skills.
