Housing Tool Kit Survey

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.

The Housing Coordinator of Developmental Services Ontario is creating a Housing Tool Kit In order to assist people, their families and their support networks in their planning. We estimate the survey to take you under 5 minutes to complete. Please take a few minutes to provide us with feedback in order to develop a  Tool Kit  that can support your planning.

Please complete this survey by June 15, 2018. Thank you in advance for your assistance and participation. If you have any questions, please contact Kelly Casey at .
