Adult Respite

How and Where to Apply

Families are encouraged to apply for service by contacting the intake facilitator in the Central Resource Department in one of the following ways:

Phone: 705 445-6351
Fax: 705 445-6313
Or in person at 100 Pretty River Parkway North, Collingwood.
The Central Resource Facilitator will assist individuals and families with any and all aspects of their application.


Eligibility is determined through the application and inquiry process through the Central Resource Department. All applicants must be 18 years or older (adults) be able to provide a formal assessment that identifies a developmental disability, with an IQ of 70 or less. Individuals who have previously received services from a transfer payment agency, but do not currently meet the eligibility requirement, are also considered eligible for service.

Wait Times for Service

All applicants are informed of the admission decision within 10 days of presentation at the E3 Admissions Committee. Applicants may be put on a needs list and wait times for placement may vary depending on the specific support required and the staff resources available.


Due to the complexity and variability of family circumstances, placement priorities are determined on a case-by-case basis.
