Passport Program

The Passport program helps caregivers of an adult with a developmental disability take a break from their caregiving responsibilities.

Passport provides funding for services and supports so adults with a developmental disability can:

  • take part in community classes or recreational programs

  • develop work, volunteer, and daily life skills

  • hire a support worker

  • create their own life plans (this is called person-directed planning) to reach their goals - Facile-Perth Independent Planning and Facilitation

  • get temporary respite for their caregivers

Passport is funded by the Ontario Government and administered by local Passport Agencies.

Who does the Passport program serve?

The Passport program is for people with a developmental disability who are 18-years-old or older and:

  • need support to participate in the community while they are still in school, or;

  • have left school and are living on their own, with family or independently in a supportive living arrangement.

Developmental Services Ontario manages the application process for all provincially-funded developmental services and supports for adults with a developmental disability in Ontario.

Contact Developmental Services Ontario to apply for adult developmental services, including Passport.
