The Party for People with Special Needs is a minor political party in Ontario, Canada, founded in 2007 and having contested the 2007 provincial election. [cite web|url=|title=Registered Political Parties in Ontario|accessdate =2007-09-30|publisher=Elections Ontario|date=September 28, 2007] The party ran two candidates, leader Danish Ahmed in Toronto Centre and John Rubino in Trinity—Spadina, [cite web|url=|title=Registered Candidate's Contact Information|accessdate =2007-09-30|publisher=Elections Ontario|date=September 27, 2007] neither of whom won.

PPSN was founded following a rule change regarding official party recognition; parties must now only field two candidates to be officially registered, as opposed to the previous requirement of running candidates in half of all electoral districts. [cite web|url=|title=Interest in Ontario's vote on electoral reform picking up: officials|accessdate =2007-09-30|publisher=The Canadian Press|date=September 19, 2007] The party's mandate is to focus on the needs of people with disabilities.
