Community Participation Supports (CPS)​

Community participation means different things to different people. For some people it’s joining an experience at a familiar place; for others it’s getting out and exploring their neighbourhood. For us, it’s about fostering neighbourhood connections, building meaningful relationships, and pursuing personal interests and skills. We offer a variety of classes and activities to learn new skills, have fun, see new places and meet new people. Our support is flexible, allowing you to choose how you want to spend your time, whether it’s in the evening, during the day, exploring new places, or sticking to a routine. We’re here to help you make your vision of community participation a reality.


Community Living Toronto offers various flexible short-term respite supports outside of the home. Whether it’s a few hours, a few days, or even a week, we are here to meet the needs of children (age 2–17) and adults (age 18+) with an intellectual disability and/or autism spectrum disorder (ASD) who live in the community with a parent or caregiver. Specialized respite supports are also offered to children with autism who have referrals highlighting higher support needs.
