To document Social Marketing.
What is Social Marketing?
Social marketing seeks to develop and integrate marketing concepts with other approaches to influence behaviors that benefit individuals and communities for the greater social good.
It seeks to integrate research, best practice, theory, audience and partnership insight, to inform the delivery of competition sensitive and segmented social change programs that are effective, efficient, equitable and sustainable.
Although "social marketing" is sometimes seen only as using standard commercial marketing practices to achieve non-commercial goals, this is an oversimplification.
The primary aim of social marketing is "social good", while in "commercial marketing" the aim is primarily "financial".
This does not mean that commercial marketers can not contribute to achievement of social good.
Increasingly, social marketing is being described as having "two parents"—a "social parent", including social science and social policy approaches, and a "marketing parent", including commercial and public sector marketing approaches.
Recent years have also witnessed a broader focus in social marketing beyond the influences on and changing individual behaviour, to socio-cultural and structural influences on social issues.
Council of Canadians with Disabilities
CCD is a national human rights organization of people with disabilities working for an inclusive and accessible Canada.
CCD's Priorities Include:
CCD seeks to achieve these priorities through law reform, litigation, public education and dialogue with key
CCD Believes In:
Citizenship—People with disabilities have the same rights and responsibilities as Canadians without disabilities. Socially made barriers, which prevent participation and discriminate against people with disabilities must be eliminated.
Consumer Control—People with disabilities must be involved in all stages of the development of disability services and policies and in all decision-making that affects their lives.
Equality and Human Rights—The Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees equal benefit and protection under the law and the Canadian Human Rights Act prohibits discrimination based upon physical or mental disability.
All legislation must conform to the demands of the Charter.
Universal Design—The environment should be designed to be usable by people with various disabilities.
CCD's Volunteers Contribute to an Inclusive and Accessible Canada by:
Self-representation—Speaking out to: the courts, decision-makers, the media, Parliamentary Committees.
Sharing Expertise—Working to create new policy, such as a National Action Plan on Disability.
Knowledge Development—Researching issues of concern to persons with disabilities, such as poverty, home supports, accessible transportation regulations and income support.
Extending Disability Rights—Doing Charter-based, test-case litigation to bring about disability-positive public policies in education, employment, health care and transportation.
Battling Barriers—Working to prevent the creation of new barriers; for example, launching a Canadian Transportation Agency case against VIA rail when it purchased inaccessible train cars.
Law Reform—Participating in legislative reviews: Human Rights Act, the Transportation Act and the Employment Equity Act.
Networking—Collaborating with major sectors of society to promote disability rights; for example, participating in the Voluntary Sector Initiative, a joint government and community project examining technology, research, volunteerism and policy development.
Partnership Development—Joining forces with other groups to build strong initiatives, such as policy development forums on key issues of concern to persons with disabilities.

The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA)
The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), founded in 1918, is one of the oldest voluntary organizations in Canada.
Each year, we provide direct service to more than 100,000 Canadians through the combined efforts of more than 10,000 volunteers and staff across Canada in over 120 communities.
As a nation-wide, voluntary organization, the Canadian Mental Health Association promotes the mental health of all and supports the resilience and recovery of people experiencing mental illness.
The CMHA accomplishes this mission through advocacy, education, research and service.
CMHA branches across Canada provide a wide range of innovative services and supports to people who are experiencing mental illness and their families.
These services are tailored to the needs and resources of the communities where they are based.
One of the core goals of these services is to help people with mental illness develop the personal tools to lead meaningful and productive lives.
To do our work we rely heavily on public and corporate donations. Please donate.
The Sam Sullivan Disability Foundation
The Sam Sullivan Disability Foundation and its affiliated societies encourage and promote the capabilities of people with physical disabilities.
We want to see everyone, regardless of physical capabilities, participating fully in society as informed, active and financially-secure citizens.
Beginning in the late 1980s, tetraplegic Sam Sullivan founded a series of charitable groups to provide opportunities for people with disabilities:
The Tetra Society, which recruits technically skilled volunteers who have collectively made more than 5,000 ‘gizmos’ for people with disabilities throughout North America.
The ConnecTra Society, which enables individuals to become more involved in their community by taking advantage of employment, training and social opportunities.
The Disabled Sailing Association provides more than 1,000 life-changing sailing experiences each year, has catalyzed the formation of 20 similar programs through North America and has 150 of its fully accessible 16-foot sailboats in use throughout the world (and now has its own boat donation site).
The BC Mobility Opportunities Society makes it possible for people with disabilities to access the great outdoors, from Metro Vancouver parks to adventures to far-flung destinations including Mt. Kilimanjaro and Everest Base Camp; there are currently 117 of its access-all-areas TrailRiders in use in programs worldwide.
Vancouver Adapted Music Society puts musical self-expression within reach, supporting and promoting musicians, staging concerts and operating its own CD-quality studio.
And the Disabled Independent Gardeners Association makes gardening accessible, enabling participants to grow fresh, healthy produce at home or in four community gardens across Vancouver.
The Disability Foundation is a fundraising entity to support these groups.
We were launched as Reach in 1996, but renamed in Sam’s honour in 2001 – purely because there was already an organization named Reach that was not too happy about us using their name.
(Sam himself voted against the suggestion but the board carried the day.)
Since its origin, the Sam Sullivan Disability Foundation has raised more than $20 million and provided quality of life opportunities for more than 10,000 people with significant disabilities.
The Foundation supports six non-profit organizations and several other initiatives that provide services throughout Canada and beyond.
In recognition of his service to people with disabilities, Sam was invested as a member of the Order of Canada in 2005 and has been the recipient of the Terry Fox Award and the Christopher and Dana Reeve Award among many other honours.
As mayor of Vancouver, Sullivan made a global statement about the capabilities of people with disabilities by waving the Olympic and Paralympic flags during the closing ceremony of the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy.
He was later appointed Canada’s 2010 Paralympic Games Ambassador.
Sam is currently serving as the MLA for Vancouver-False Creek.
