CILT is a consumer-controlled, community-based resource organization. We help people with disabilities to learn Independent Living skills and integrate into the community. (Please note: CILT is a resource agency and does not do any political, systemic or group advocacy!)

 CILT operates on the philosophy of the Independent Living movement which was developed in response to traditional rehabilitation services models. CILT's aim is to develop and implement dignified social services that empower individuals rather than create dependencies. We encourage people with disabilities to take control of their own lives by exercising their right to examine options, make choices, take risks and even make mistakes.

SASS for Women is a non-profit organization offering services, free of charge, to women 16 years of age and older who are victims/survivors of sexual violence. SASS has been of service to our community since 1994. A volunteer driven organization, we operate crisis lines in English and French, 24 hours a day, seven days a week as well as providing accompaniment to the police station, hospital and/or court. We offer one-on-one counselling and offer support groups for women survivors. SASS does public education presentations in schools, businesses, service clubs and church groups as well as doing public education booths in various locations throughout Cornwall. We believe public education is a useful tool for reaching women who have suffered from sexual violence as well as a tool to educate the public toward prevention of violence overall. SASS works toward being a beacon of hope for all women in our community.Here is a list of the free and confidential services SASS offers:

  • Crisis Lines - one in French and one in English, which operate 24/7 days a week;
  • Accompaniment to the police station, hospital, court or anywhere else according to the woman's need;
  • Public Education to community groups, schools, agencies, and workplaces in an effort to increase the awareness and prevent sexual violence;
  • Support in defending the rights of clients by writing letters of support, helping to fill out official paperwork, etc.;
  • Counselling one-on-one to help women understand the effects of sexual violence;
  • Informational/Support Groups for women and younger women on different topics; and
  • Referral in the community.
