Developmental Services

Developmental services workers provide professional care primarily to people with developmental or “intellectual” disabilities. We are on the job around the clock in high support behavioural homes and community residences. We also provide individual home care in our clients’ own homes.

Children's Aid Societies

The CAS sector advocates for Ontario’s Child Protection staff who protect our children.

We are committed to our dedicated members who see that Ontario’s children are safe.
