This report is aimed at raising community awareness on disability issues, with emphasis on new concepts and introducing challenging and progressive ideas. It is based on experiences of service brokerage and individualised funding observed in Canada and stresses the role of citizenship. The impediments to brokerage and individualised funding are found in factors which include "deep attitudinal and structural factors (which) impede persons with disability from participating in the full benefits of citizenship". The author of the report believes that the implementation of brokerage and individualised funding could act as a powerful catalyst for social change. Keyword: Individualisation
