People with a developmental disability today want to be active participants in their communities. To do that, they rely on a variety of local programs and services that promote inclusion and involvement.
The Ministry of Community and Social Services financially assists with developmental services and programs that support inclusion for adults with a developmental disability and their families. These services allow them to live, work and participate in a wide range of activities in their communities. Community agencies deliver most of the available services and supports.
