Abstract
This two-year study examined the challenges identified by urban Aboriginal families of
children with physical disabilities and determined practical solutions for policy makers
and service providers to help eliminate or overcome these obstacles. The study has
been coordinated by National Association of Friendship Centres, Ottawa and funded
through the Social Development Partnership Program – Office for Disability Issues
of the Government of Canada. Interviews were conducted with Aboriginal parents of
children with disabilities and service providers in the social and health services across
Canada. The study concentrated on Regina but site visits and interviews were conducted
in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. Telephone interviews were completed with
participants in Halifax. These site visits were very enlightening. Although, most of the
issues are common across the country, there are significant issues and unique concerns
in some locations.
