Our History

First created in 1954, CLD has a long history. Today with 15 locations, we are an integral and active community member. With over 200 paid and voluntary staff, and under the direction of a volunteer board, CLD assists some 150 adults in Dufferin County. We feel that our Association is stronger if we have members from the Dufferin Community who believe in becoming involved in making a positive difference in the social fabric of our community. We hope that you too hold these beliefs. With your help and membership, Community Living Dufferin can continue to work toward a more inclusive place to live.

  • Receiving our newsletter, published six times a year.
  • Distribution of information regarding Ministry policy changes affecting clients or families
  • Becoming better informed on programs available in Dufferin County for the disabled

  • Joining in promoting better care, rights and inclusion for individuals with intellectual disabilities
