Helpful Resources

While you are waiting for your ministry-funded services to become available, you may want to research other local community resources, program and activities.

Try connecting with your local recreation centre, private recreation providers, seniors centre and non-profit organizations that offer a variety of programs and activities for adults with special needs and seniors. Many of these programs are geared to meet the interests and abilities of all participants.

Call us at 1 (888) 941-1121 and ask to speak to a DSO Service Navigator in your community for more information.

Below is a list of some provincial organizations that may be able to help you connect with more local resources.
