Learning Disabilities Association of Canada (LDAC) /
Association canadienne des troubles d’apprentissage (ACTA)

The Learning Disabilities Association of Canada (LDAC) is a national, non-profit voluntary organization which was founded in 1963 and incorporated in 1971. The organization’s mission is to be the national voice for persons with learning disabilities and those who support them. LDAC is dedicated to a level playing field for individuals with learning disabilities to enable them to function as citizens with equitable opportunities and to develop to their chosen potential. LDAC accomplishes these goals through public awareness about the nature and impact of learning disabilities, advocacy, research, health, education and collaborative efforts.

Over the years, LDAC has convened experts from across Canada to examine specific research areas in the field of learning disabilities that are of particular interest to its grassroots members. Many of the findings have had major impact on policy development and programs that have enhanced access to more equitable opportunities for individuals with learning disabilities, their families and those that work with them in school, at home, in the workplace and in the community.
