Ontario Making It Easier For Families In Ottawa To Find Developmental Disability Supports

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

This single window makes it easier for people and families to get the services and supports they need in one location. This will provide them with accurate information and reduce duplication.

In Ottawa, the Developmental Services Ontario office will provide peace of mind by confirming eligibility for services, determining people's needs and linking them to supports - 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.

Quick Facts

  • Visit Ottawa's Developmental Services Ontario office at 200-150 Montreal Road.
