ONTARIO MAKING IT EASIER FOR FAMILIES IN NEWMARKET TO FIND DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITY SUPPORTS

Beginning July 1, the Developmental Services Ontario office in Newmarket is the new, single point of access to services for adults with a developmental disability.

In Newmarket, the Developmental Services Ontario office will provide peace of mind for adults with developmental disabilities by confirming eligibility for services, determining their needs and linking them to supports and services.

This single window makes it easier for people and families to get the information they require– all in one place.

Developmental Services Ontario is a key part of the province’s transformation plan to improve services for adults with a developmental disability.
