Journey to Belonging: Choice and Inclusion

Learn how the ministry is working with its partners on a long-term vision for developmental services where people with developmental disabilities fully belong in their communities and are supported to live the lives they choose.

People with a developmental disability 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 Children, Community and Social Services provides funding for developmental services and programs that support inclusion for adults with a developmental disability and their families. These services enable them to live, work and participate in a wide range of activities in their communities. Community agencies deliver most of our services and supports.
