Ability Online (Ability Gives)

Ability Online is a supportive online community for kids of all abilities. We understand that disability and long term illness can sometimes make participating in social activities a challenge. Our online community provides its members and their families with the opportunity to connect with others in an environment that is safe, monitored and rich in resources. (source)


Eligibility Requirements

Applicants must be active members of Ability Online (and have been active members for a minimum of 3 months) who reside in Canada (An active member logs on to the Ability Online site more than once a week and reads and posts messages to other members). The most active members will be given priority consideration.

The device/equipment requested will make a significant difference in the life of a child/youth 18 years of age or under (Sorry but we are unable to fund services/therapy at this time)

Family must be willing to post their child's story and picture on our web site (first names only). Written or video testimonials welcome. Please send all documentation etc to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We will rally the community at large to help raise the funds required

Only one equipment request per family

Due to the overwehlming demand for our program we are UNABLE to fund home renovations or accessible vehicles or retrofits. Grants are limited to personal mobility aids, therapeutic equipment and communication aids.

How Much of the Equipment Purchase is Funded by the Program?

While there are some financial supports available, the full cost is not always covered or you may not meet all the eligibility requirements, and it is that amount that may prevent your child from getting what he/she needs to be as self-sufficient as possible
