A provincial network that shares leadership and builds connections to promote personalized support.

The Provincial Respite Services Network connects various agencies, including those funded by the Ministry of Community and Social Services and the Ministry of Children and Youth Services. The partners in the network collaborate to develop a more dynamic support network for both children and adults in the province. The network has had significant success through province-wide promotion of a web-based tool to facilitate respite/direct support options.
