Breaking Down Barriers - Your Independent Living Resource Centre

Breaking Down Barriers empowers people with disabilities, enabling them to live independently in our communities of Simcoe, Bruce and Grey Counties.

Breaking Down Barriers is a registered charity and an inclusive agency, serving people with physical, sensory, emotional or intellectual disabilities. Disabilities can be visible or invisible. We are located in Collingwood but serve South Georgian Bay including Wasaga Beach, Clearview and the Town of the Blue Mountains and Simcoe, Bruce and Grey Counties. Our website reflects the many activities, programs and initiatives that we provide for people with disabilities and the whole community. We welcome those interested to participate in our programs and events either as consumers, volunteers or members. Come and join us as we continue to break down barriers that prevent the full participation of people with disabilities in our community. Please explore our website for more information, visit on our facebook page or call us at 705-445-1543.
