Visit to CanAssist

CanAssist at the University of Victoria envisions a society where all people have the opportunity to participate, contribute and reach their full potential.

CanAssist strives to be a highly respected national resource that collaborates with UVic researchers and students, as well as diverse external partners, to provide people who experience physical or cognitive barriers with innovative technologies, programs and services that address unmet needs and increase independence, inclusion and well-being.

A sign welcomes all visitors, volunteers and researchers:

We strive to apply rigour and best practices to the planning, development and delivery of all our technologies and programs. Our dedicated team aspires to consistently exceed our partners’ and clients’ expectations, and to create extraordinary opportunities for research and hands-on learning.

CanAssist practices inclusion in all their work with others to eliminate barriers to participation.
