The ElmTree Ability Centre for Special Needs (ElmTree) is a family resource centre serving the Special Needs community in the Calgary area. A unique, multi sensory environment that is the heart of all resources for those with different abilities and their loved ones. We provide direction following a diagnosis and offer ongoing support from infancy through adulthood. Our focus is connect families, collaborate with existing resources and bridge the gap by offering additional programs and services in a fun, safe, and engaging space.

Our mission is to provide a solid foundation for individuals with diverse needs and their families, where we embrace differences, encourage strengths and empower individuals of all abilities to become everything they were born to be. Our goal is to ensure a warm and welcoming gathering place for members to come together, learn together(and from each other) and grow together, while promoting global acceptance for all.
