Passport Funding

Effective since April 1, 2012 for Ontario residents confirmed to be eligible for Adult Developmental Services and 18 years of age or older, Passport Funding provides opportunities for adult individuals who have a developmental disability to find more ways to participate in their communities, as well as provide caregivers with respite choices. 

Through their allotted annual budget, Passport Funding recipients submit claims to be reimbursed for eligible fee-for-service activities and supports that encourage their personal development and help them achieve their potential.  Passport also helps to:

  • Improve the quality of participation in the community by providing supports that focus on individual goals, work activities and community participation
  • Smooth the transition from school to life as an adult in the community
  • Promote independence
  • Foster social, emotional and community participation skills 
  • Promote continuing education and personal development. 

Passport Funding recipients can live with their family, independently or in supportive living.

Individuals who are 16 years of age or older can apply directly to their regional Developmental Services Ontario office to confirm their eligibility for Adult Developmental Services, including Passport Funding.
