What is Community Living disAbility Services?

Community Living disABILITY Services (CLDS) (formerly the Supported Living Program) offers a range of day and residential services aimed at providing adults with a mental disability, defined as significantly impaired intellectual functioning existing concurrently with impaired adaptive behaviour and manifested prior to the age of 18 years, but excludes mental disability due exclusively to a mental disorder as defined in section 1 of The Mental Health Act. The program provides the opportunity for independence in a community setting to the extent possible for each individual.  CLDS supports that are potentially available include residential services, day services and related support services.
