Joan Jordan attended York University and enjoyed a very diversified professional background as an Employment Counsellor at York University and a General Manager of a large Co-op Housing complex, to name just a few.  A major spinal cord injury dictated the end of Joan's professional career, but she makes up for it through her extensive volunteer work and by being a dedicated and involved community leader who not only advocates for the rights of everyone but also, in particular, for seniors and people with disabilities.  She is a long-time TIGP board member and she is also an active and involved member of several organizations, including the Centre for Independent Living in Toronto (C.I.L.T.), Toronto Community Housing's Communications Workgroup, ARCH, Spinal Cord Injury Toronto and, most recently, as a member of the TTC's Advisory Committee on Accessible Transit and on the Toronto Police Service's Community Police Liaison Committee at 54 Division.  Joan sincerely believes that breaking down barriers will lead to an enriched, enlightened community where everyone can live in an environment of tolerance, acceptance, understanding, support and, ultimately, harmony!
