We offer one to one support in person by appointment, by phone and by video conferencing. Our Diner’s Club monthly event provides and excellent opportunity to network and meet new people. The weekly Drop-In events will be starting soon, with some fun new activities.

We also provide access to support on issues such as: attendant services, income supports, assistive devices, counselling services, and crisis relief programs. We provide this service in person by appointment, over the phone, by email, and by video call.
