Developmental Services Ontario Toronto Region
Your access point for adult developmental services and supports
Developmental Services Ontario (DSO) is the access point for adult developmental services funded by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS) in Ontario. There are 9 DSO agencies located across the province serving different counties and regions. Surrey Place is the DSO Toronto region service provider.
If you have a developmental disability, live in Toronto, and are at least 16 years old you can apply through DSO Toronto Region (DSO TR) to see if you are eligible to receive adult Ministry-funded supports. Although supports only become available at age 18, applying at age 16 is strongly encouraged to help you prepare for your transition into adult services and avoid potential delays.
DSO TR helps:
- Determine your eligibility for adult developmental services
- Complete the application package which helps determine the services and supports you need
- Connect to MCCSS-funded services and supports
- Receive information about other community resources
DSO TR is in compliance with MCCSS care and safety requirements.
