Back to the Ministry of Community and Social Services Summary page

Effective and accountable community-based services are directed to those most in need in the fairest possible manner. Ontario's social assistance programs provide financial and employment supports to eligible single adults and families, including persons with disabilities, to help them become financially independent. Adults' social services provide programs and supports for Aboriginal people through the Aboriginal Healing and Wellness Strategy, community services for women and children who are victims of domestic violence, adults who are homeless or at risk of being homeless, and individuals who are living with a sensory disability. Developmental services provide financial assistance to adults with a developmental disability and their families for services and programs that support inclusion by helping them to live, work and participate in a wide range of activities in their communities. The Family Responsibility Office is an enforcement program working with support payors and support recipients to meet their family support responsibilities. The Accessibility Directorate of Ontario leads the implementation of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 and the Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2001 to achieve accessibility for Ontarians with disabilities through the development and enforcement of accessibility standards, public education and guidance, tools and resources for accessibility planning and programming.
