Real People Campaign - Share your experiences and advocate.

The Every Canadian Counts (ECC) Coalition is calling on Canadian governments to work together to develop a national program to ensure essential disability supports are available to all Canadians living with chronic, long-term disabilities. The Coalition includes individuals living with disabilities, caregivers, advocates, and support organizations.

Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) is an excellent link to find all the resources necessary for a wide range of health needs including people with disabilities.

Registered Disability Savings Plan

On December 1st, 2008 the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP) officially became a financial savings mechanism in Canada. Similar to Registered Education Savings Plans (RESP), the RDSP would allow families to save money for their loved ones with a disability and help plan for future needs. To qualify for the RDSP, an individual must qualify for the disability tax credit , which our children with special needs should already be qualified for, therefore there is no extra registration needed with the Federal Government. The Ontario Government has announced that RDSP contributions do not affect eligibility for social assistance (ODSP) and that people on social assistance can take money out of an RDSP without affecting their social assistance (ODSP) benefits .


Coordinated Information Peel (CIP)

This is a no fee information service in Peel Region for children, families, and people with developmental disabilities.

Information is available on types of service, eligibility criteria, locations of agencies, areas served, hours of service and program costs. CIP connects you to agencies who match you with a service coordinator who explains in detail the different funding and programs available.

Interpretive services are available in 180 different languages.

Coordinated Information Peel provides information on services funded by the provincial government under the Child and Family Services Act and the Developmental Services Act, and information on, or linkages to, related services (e.g. physicians).
