About Opportunities for the Disabled Foundation:

Opportunities for Disabled Foundation's charitable status was revoked by the Charities Directorate following an audit effective February 2015. No further information is available at this time.

 

Founded in 1996, the Opportunities for Disabled Foundation (ODF) seeks to support people with physical disabilities to live more fulfilling and independent lives. ODF operates a year-round public awareness campaign across Canada informing the general public about specific disability issues and the programs that are available for physically challenged Canadians. In addition, ODF offers a recycling program for special needs computer equipment, as well as medical equipment such as wheelchairs and scooters. ODF also distributes a disability resource guide that offers information about programs and resources available to the physically challenged.

ODF uses an external fundraiser that distributes boxes selling chocolates. ODF received 36% of these revenues.  There have been many media stories about ODF. Most recently, a  2013  Metro News investigative story raised serious allegations donors may consider reviewing.
