The Party for People with Special Needs (French: Parti pour les gens qui ont des besoins spéciaux) is a minor political party in Ontario, Canada, founded in 2007 and having contested the 2007 provincial election.[1] The party ran two candidates, leader Danish Ahmed in Toronto Centre and John Rubino in Trinity—Spadina,[2] neither of whom won.

PPSN was founded following a rule change regarding official party recognition; parties must now only field two candidates to be registered, as opposed to the previous requirement of running candidates in half of all electoral districts.[3] The party's mandate is to focus on the needs of people with disabilities.
