The Centre for Independent Living in Toronto, known as CILT is a consumer-controlled, community-based resource organization. We help people with disabilities learn Independent Living skills and integrate into the community.

CILT operates on the philosophy of the Independent Living movement which was developed in response to traditional rehabilitation services models.
