A Brief Summary

This election, we are looking for a commitment to invest in developmental services to:

  1. Improve and expand essential services to support people through key life changes.
  2. Attract and retain creative, compassionate, and highly capable Direct Support Professionals.

Invest in Developmental Services to Offer Excellent and Competitive Support

The Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) who work in our sector are essential to our communities.

Investing in our sector can:

  • Promote communities where everybody belongs.
  • Retain the progress we have made over the last year to keep wages competitive and livable.
  • Ensure DSPs have the resources, skills, and training to provide excellent care.

The Journey to Belonging: Choice and Inclusion Strategy

We support the “Journey to Belonging: Choice and Inclusion Strategy”, which was created by the Ministry of Children, Community, and Social Services (MCCSS) and its partners to outline a plan for Developmental Disability Services in Ontario.

Improving and expanding services in our sector means:

  • As life changes, so should the support you recieve.
  • Services can be easier to use with less wait times.
  • Improving services that support people leaving high school, trying to find a job, and finding safe and affordable housing.

Funding vs Costs of Living

Provincial funding increases haven’t kept up to match inflation. We need to raise rates to match the cost of living.
