LiveWorkPlay (LWP) is a Canadian charitable organization for people with intellectual disabilities. Founded in Ottawa in 1995 by the husband and wife team of Keenan Wellar and Julie Kingstone, LWP was originally known as the Special Needs Network.

As the organization evolved it began to adopt a philosophy of supporting self-determination for people with intellectual disabilites. In the year 2000 the name was changed to LiveWorkPlay to focus on the organization's goal of promoting full participation and decision-making with regard to living situations, work, and play. In 2005 the LiveWorkPlay organization formally adopted self-advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities as its mission.
