Ontario Independent Facilitation Network (known as OIFN) envisions people with developmental disabilities being supported to direct their own lives, and live as valued community members and citizens. We are a growing Community of Practice that includes people with developmental disabilities, family members, Independent Facilitators, and other allies interested in creating new ways for people to be supported. We are committed to FACILITATING CHANGE and CUSTOMIZING SUPPORT in the lives of people with developmental disabilities, and their families.

Discover things we have learned through the Independent Facilitation Demonstration Project: the historical context of innovation and change; what people are saying they need and want?; what Independent Facilitation is, and who can benefit; the challenges of getting started; looking forward to what is next.
