Creative Village Studio Summer Update

We recently shared an important update with you about our lease agreement at Creative Village Studio (CVS). While the current CVS location at 4895 Dundas Street West in Etobicoke has served us very well over the years, it became clear that we’ve outgrown the space. After careful consideration we decided not to renew our lease and Community Living Toronto will officially exit the current CVS location on June 30, 2024.

This does not mean that CVS arts programming is ending.

Developmental Services Ontario

“Developmental Services Ontario (DSO) is the access point for adult developmental services funded by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS) in Ontario. There are 9 DSO locations across the province.

When you turn 18, your children’s developmental services such as Special Services at Home, Assistance for Children with Severe Disabilities, and services through the Ontario Autism Program end. This means that you must apply through DSO to see if you are eligible to receive adult MCCSS funded supports available in your community.

When you connect with your area DSO they will help you:

  • understand and complete the application process.
  • determine the kind of services and supports you need.
  • get access to MCCSS funded services and supports that you need when a spot is available.
  • find information in your community.”

Passport Funding Program

“The Passport Program, funded by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS), helps adults with a developmental disability be involved in their communities and live as independently as possible by providing funding for community participation services and supports, activities of daily living and person-directed planning. The program also provides funding for caregiver respite services and supports for primary caregivers of an adult with a developmental disability.” (Excerpt taken from https://www.dsontario.ca/passport-program)
