New Assistive Device Exchange Website

Independent Living Services of Simcoe County (ILS) is happy to announce the launch of our new and improved Assistive Device Exchange website. You can find the site at

The website continues to be a place where anyone who has assistive device equipment they no longer need can list it for sale or give away.  Anyone who is looking for equipment can to obtain equipment at a reduced or no cost. The best part is that this website is now easier to use than ever!

The site has a new name (.com instead of .ca) and is now easier to navigate.  Users can create their own account to list or find devices in their local area. The site also includes a user-friendly ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ and photos and the dimensions of the devices being offered. Users of the site can also use message boards to communicate with each other to make a match.

The re-use of adaptive equipment helps everyone:  it helps de-clutter, saves people money, allows access for people who couldn’t otherwise afford these needed devices, and prevents devices from going into landfill.  If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact Christy at the Accessibility Resource Centre at ILS at 705-737-3263 or email

Please spread the news to your network!
