At the Developmental Services Ontario Toronto Region (DSO
Toronto Region), the well-being of our clients, families, staff and visitors is
our highest priority. As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, we have decided
to close our office – as of Saturday, March 14, and plan to reopen on Monday,
April 6. We are following the advice of public health authorities and
continue to monitor their evolving updates.
Those who have a scheduled appointment with an assessor
(March 14 to April 5, 2020) will be contacted by the assessor and offered two
options: (1) to keep the appointment and complete the assessment via phone or
videoconferencing; or (2) to reschedule at a later date.
All eligibility requests are going forward. However,
responses may be delayed.
Please note that service requests are being processed, as
usual; however, due to other agencies’ coronavirus response plans, visits may
be on hold during this time.
During this closure, we continue to respond to all information
requests by phone, and registration for the DSO Toronto Region remains
available. Give us a call at 1-855-372-3858.
As of now, we plan to reopen on Monday, April 6, and we will
update you as soon as we can. We thank everyone for your patience and understanding
as we respond to this situation.
