Discovery our history…

Com-Span Inc. arose out of parents’ desires for the best of lives for their children. The history of Com-Span Inc. is the history of social equality for people with disabilities.

We focus on the following core values:

Inclusiveness

All individuals are entitled to opportunities to grow and to contribute to society. We support all with whom we work with kindness, caring and compassion in order for them to enjoy life as accepted and equal community members.

Respect

We, at Com-Span, recognize our impact on others and the world around us. Each voice is heard and appreciated, and our actions and reactions to people reflect that we hold each individual in high regard.

Community

Com-Span strives to model the empathy and fairness that will make the community a better place to live, work and play for everyone. We recognize and embrace our role in helping our community to be more accepting and welcoming of all people, particularly those living with disabilities.

Organizational Excellence

Com-Span offers services and programs that are informed by the input of the individuals we serve and by evidence-based best practice. Thoughtful stewardship of resources, mutually beneficial partnerships and a positive work ethic make Com-Span a strong, sustainable and viable organization. Com-Span pursues growth, but not at the expense of the integrity of services.

Our Board of Directors

The Board of Directors and Executive Committee are made up of volunteers who bring a wide array of skills and expertise to the task of governing a not-for- profit organization.

The Board of Directors is responsible for ensuring that the best interests of the program participants are protected and for oversight of management, finances and other activities involving Com-Span.

Com-Span holds an Annual General Meeting generally in the late summer or early fall. The AGM is open to the general public.
