What is LIFE?

Established in 2000, Innovative Life Options Inc. (LIFE) is a province wide non-profit organization that serves as a resource hub offering information, guidance and support to individuals living with an intellectual disability and their supporters. 

Engaging in a person-centered approach, LIFE empowers individuals to create the quality of life that they desire within the framework of valued and meaningful relationships.   LIFE believes that relationships and community connections are integral to a person’s success and satisfaction in their life.

LIFE also encourages individuals and their supporters to develop a vision for what a good life looks like to them.  The LIFE team assists individuals and their supporters by facilitating a process of moving that vision to reality.
LIFE’s staff are trained to utilize a variety of approaches to assist individuals in planning their lives and the supports that they will require to achieve their goals.  Some of these approaches include:

  • Making Action Plans (MAPS)
  • Planning Alternative Tomorrows with Hope (PATH)
  • Personal Outcome Measures (POMs)
  • Person Centered Planning

The information, guidance, and support provided is different for each person with whom LIFE works, given that no two people are the same.  Accordingly, the LIFE team is flexible and adaptable.

Governed by a board of directors and guided by an Executive Director, the LIFE team supports the In the Company of Friends funding model and offers a variety of workshops and program supports to individuals living with an intellectual disability and those that support them.
