ICDR Background

The International Centre for Disability and Rehabilitation (ICDR) at the University of Toronto was formed in 2004 with a dream of making global issues related to disability and rehabilitation a focus within the Rehabilitation Sciences Sector, the Faculty of Medicine, and throughout the UniversityofToronto. ICDR quickly became a hub for like-minded people interested in, and committed to a common vision and a set of values.

Our growth since 2004 has been described as organic, an appropriate term for our initial approach to development. With minimal resources we have survived and thrived. Our successes include formal partnerships in ten countries and informal relationships in many others. We have become a point of entry for rehabilitation students, faculty and clinicians seeking international experiences. Most go on to join the dozens of volunteers who have kept the Centre running.
