SURVEY - Housing Tool Kit /
SONDAGE - Trousse d’outils de logement

Over the last few years, more and more people and their families/support networks have become actively engaged in planning for their future. This movement has been partially spurred by recent  community-based projects that  provided replicable examples of  creative, inclusive and cost-effective housing solutions for adults with developmental disabilities.

Calling all people labelled with an intellectual/developmental disability, 
families, friends and allies!

Come out and join members of DANEO (the Disability Advocacy Network of Eastern Ontario) in front of the offices of the Ministry of Community and Social Services (MCSS) for a rally in support of a dignified life for people labelled with an intellectual/developmental disability. Ontario elections are here, let's have our voices heard!

Monday, June 4th from 4pm-6pm.
(Some of us will be there at 3pm to make signs, we’ll have extra poster paper & markers, feel free to come early.)
