Supported Independent Living



Many adults with developmental disabilities can live in their own homes or apartments when provided with three to five hours of weekly support from CLD.


Creative Partners On Stage


Imagine for a moment that you have a disability; one that prevents you from fulfilling your dreams, from reaching your full potential, from sharing your passion, your creativity, from being all that you can be. That is until Community Living Dufferin created a unique, inspirational Drama Group.

Employment Plus

Effective job coaching can enable people with developmental disabilities achieve their employment potential. CLD assists people with disabilities so they develop good working habits, improve their social skills and increase their productivity.

Community Living Dufferin envisions communities that create opportunities to connect all people!

Community Living Dufferin promotes equal opportunity and respect for people who have developmental disabilities by listening to them and supporting their choices to achieve the lives they want.

What is Passport Funding?

Passport is a program funded by the Ontario government that helps adults with a developmental disability who are 18 years and older to participate in their communities. Passport provides funding for services and supports so adults can take part in community classes or recreational programs, develop work, volunteer and daily life skills, hire a support worker, create their own “person directed planning” to reach goals, or get temporary respite for their caregivers.
