Giving people without speech new ways to talk


The Open Access Resource Centre (OARC) is committed to improving the lives of Manitobans with speech challenges through the use of communication devices. OARC operates an extensive equipment loan program through which Manitobans who have communication difficulties, and their service providers, can assess the everyday usefulness of a speech generating device by trying it for a 10-week period.


Our Mission Statement

The Open Access Resource Centre provides assistive technology, training and resources to individuals with communication difficulties and those that support them.


Our Vision

Working toward a world where everyone can communicate.
