Request a CanAssist technology

CanAssist develops customized technologies for people of all ages and from across the disability spectrum. In order for CanAssist to take on a project, the solution must be unavailable commercially or through other providers. (However, CanAssist does modify commercial technologies when they do not meet an individual's specific needs.) Whether a request turns into a project also depends on whether the project is viable and whether funding - whether from philanthropic or other sources - can be secured.

If you believe that you or someone you know could benefit from a customized technology, please select the appropriate category below:

Individuals and families
CanAssist receives limited funding from philanthropic sources each year to undertake technology projects for clients who approach us on an individual basis. Requests can be made by the client, a family member, or other person in the client's life.



OTs and other professionals
CanAssist often receives technology requests from occupational therapists, speech language pathologists and other professionals. In these cases, technology development can often be billed to third-party agencies.

Organizations
CanAssist undertakes ongoing fee-for-service arrangements as well as larger one-time projects with various organizations, to provide customized technologies to their staff members or client base. We are happy to explore such agreements with government and non-government organizations.
