  • Dignity – providing services in a way that allows people with disabilities to maintain self-respect and the respect of others
  • Integration – allowing people with disabilities to benefit from the same services, in the same place, and in the same or similar ways as others
  • Equality of Opportunity – offering people with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit from the federation’s services and co-op life
