Community Impact

Canopy Support Services is an incorporated non-profit organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. We serve the varied needs of adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families/caregivers, and the agencies supporting them in their community. Many of our services are funded by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS) which are free of charge to individuals, families, and agencies. In 2019, we began transitioning our Autism services to a fee-for-service model in response to Government changes to the Ontario Autism Program, and are expanding to offer a variety of other services to meet the needs of people in our communities.
