Why Become a Member

The services that the AQPPT offers to its members and the community at large are essential, but we need the support of as many people as possible to continue fostering the social, academic, and professional integration of little people.

Besides the financial support provided by every contribution, a strong membership gives us a strong presence with government bodies and donors. By becoming a member of the AQPPT, you support us in defending the interests of people with dwarfism, and you significantly contribute to the development of the Association.

As a member of the Association, you will receive the Association Newsletter and be entitled to a discount when registering for social activities at the AQPPT (Christmas party, provincial meeting, etc.) If you or your children are of small stature, you will also have access to support services and personalized assistance and have voting rights at annual general meetings of the Association. In addition, we will assign you a personal password to gain access to our website section reserved for members.

The members' section of our website includes:

  • Pictures, addresses, and additional information on technical aids and adaptations.
  • Links and forms to help little people to assert their rights (parking stickers for persons with disabilities, tax credits, (Work Integration contract), Home Adaptation Program, etc.)
  • A directory of specialized resources including more than 500 addresses.
  • A list of members who have agreed to disclose personal information online to facilitate communication access.
