Independence Skill Building

This directory contains Community Participation Support, Caregiver Respite and Person-Directed Planning Support listings for transitional age youth and adults that may be purchased using Ministry of Community and Social Services (MCSS) “Passport” funding or personal funds. Cost varies based on an individual’s support needs and program activities.

  • The directory has been compiled for information purposes. Families/individuals are responsible for assessing each program to determine whether it meets their needs.
  • None of the programs listed receive direct funding from the Ministry of Community and Social Services (MCSS). Some of the programs might have funding from another source.

For programs funded through the Ministry of Community and Social Services (MCSS) go to Developmental Services Ontario

If you know of a program that is not listed here but you think should be, or if the information in the directory is not accurate, please let us know about it:

Programs that are not MCSS funded and are provided on a Fee For Service basis only.
