1 out of every 7 Canadians report having a disability. Easter Seals is dedicated to enhance the quality of life, self-esteem, and self-determination of Canadians with disabilities. Particularly with funds the bake sale will raise this year, they will go towards summer camps & active living programs for children with disabilities. Kids and youth can learn more about themselves, build meaningful relationships, and realize their full potentials. They are able to gain the confidence and independence to challenge themselves.

As Canada’s largest local provider of programs, services, issues-leadership and development for the disability community, Easter Seals is dedicated to helping more than 100,000 Canadians with disabilities participate fully in society.

Easter Seals provincial organizations offer transformative programs and services at the local level, the best known of which are Easter Seals camp programs.

Every year thousands of children challenge themselves while having the time of their lives at 15 Easter Seals camps nationwide.

Other services include year-round active living opportunities, as well as the provision of specialized mobility and access equipment such as mobility aids, assistive technology, adaptive computers, augmentative communication devices and adaptations to homes and vehicles for wheelchair accessibility.
