Accessible Parking Permits

Accessible parking permits allow persons living with a disability or people who have difficulty walking more than 100 meters to use designated “Disability Parking Only” or “Handicapped Parking” sites. These permits cost $25 at the centre or $27 mailed out. These fees cover our costs and contribute to our current and future free programs.

Resource-Related Services

Information and Referral Program (IRRP)

The IRRP provides information and referral services by connecting people with the resources they need. We provide basic and clear information about income assistance, support programs and tenancy. We take the time on behalf of our clients to research and provide all applicable resources available, to them tailored to their individual circumstance and need. The IRRP also offers assistance and advocacy to clients with filling out the first portion of the PWD (Provincial disability funding) form as well as helping clients obtain the PWD application form. We assist in applying for CPP-D (Federal disability funding), the Disability Tax Credit and in filling out any forms/applications (housing applications, insurance forms, medical equipment applications, and long-term disability forms).
