What is Passport?

Passport is a program that helps adults 18 years or older with a developmental disability, participate in their communities. It also helps caregivers of an adult with a developmental disability take a break from their caregiving responsibilities.

Passport provides funding for services and supports so adults with a developmental disability can:


take part in community classes or recreational programs;


develop work, volunteer and daily life skills;


hire a support worker;


create their own life plans (this is called person-directed planning) to reach their goals;


get temporary respite for their caregivers; and


Passport is funded by the Ontario government and administered by local Passport Agencies.
