Social Purpose Portfolio
Neil Squire Society (NSS) is the only national not-for- profit organization in Canada that has for over 30 years empowered Canadians with disabilities through the use of computer-based assistive technologies, research and development, and various employment programs.
Through their work, NSS helps their clients remove barriers so they are able to live independent lives and become active members of the workplace and society.
LIFT has partnered with NSS to support the organization’s desire to make the world of technology more accessible for people with disabilities. In order to expand the reach, impact and effectiveness of NSS, LIFT will work with NSS over two years to build additional organizational capacity, support fund development capacity and implementation, strengthen brand awareness across the country and enhance the organization’s performance measurement framework.
This includes preparing the organization for the growth of their social enterprise, opportunities to scale operations into the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and Quebec, and to capitalize on innovations in Research and Development.
