The Passport Program is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS).  The Passport program helps adults with a developmental disability stay involved in their communities and live as independently as possible. It provides direct funding for community participation services and supports, activities of daily living, and person-directed planning.  The program also provides funding for caregiver respite for primary caregivers of adults with developmental disabilities.  

The key goals of the Passport program are to:

  • Foster independence by building on individuals’ abilities and developing community participation, social and daily living skills.
  • Increase opportunities for participation in the community with supports that respect personal choices and decision-making, and help people achieve their goals.
  • Promote social inclusion and broaden social relationships through the use of community resources and services available to everyone in the community.
  • Help young people make the transition from school to life as an adult in the community.
  • Support families and caregivers of an adult with a developmental disability so they can continue in their supportive role.
