Passport is an Ontario Government funded program for any adult deemed eligible with a Developmental Disability. Individuals must apply for the program through Developmental Services Ontario (DSO) to access it. The Passport program assists individuals to participate in activities of their choice and in some cases provides a break/respite for the caregivers for short periods of time.
Often individuals use the program to participate in recreational activities but it can be used to develop volunteer/employment skills, participation in community-based classes/programs, hire their own support staff, travel and temporary respite for caregivers.
Please visit the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services and the DSO websites for more information regarding this service.
To learn more about the application process, please contact Development Services Ontario at 1-855-376-6673 or visit their website.
