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.

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 portential, from sharing your passion, your creativity, from being all that you can be.  That is until Community LivingDufferin created a unique, inspirational drama group.
