The Centre for Independent Living in Toronto (CILT) offers our deepest condolences to the family and peers of Michael Miceli. Michael passed away in Toronto on December 22nd, 2020
For over 10 years, Michael was a valued part of the CILT community. He warmly engaged with his peers and non-profits at many of our independent living skills and social events. A graduate of York University’s Critical Disability Studies Program, Michael was articulate in advocating for disability justice, including with government. He did so effectively over the past 2 years as a member of the Toronto Accessibility Advisory Committee (TAAC).
Michael was a very kind, outgoing and generous person and could have a conversation with anyone. He had Muscular Dystrophy and volunteered with non-profit causes over the years. Michael’s tireless pursuit of a world inclusive of people with disabilities inspired and rallied others to engage as allies with him.
Thank you, Michael, for all you have done to elevate our community’s issues and to shape a better world that includes everyone.
