Developmental Services Ontario Northern Region (DSONR)

About Us

Developmental Services Ontario (DSO) is the access point for adult developmental services and supports funded by the MCCSS. There are nine regional DSO offices across Ontario that help adults with a developmental disability connect with services and supports in their communities.

Developmental Services Ontario Northern Region (DSONR) includes the districts of Thunder Bay, Kenora/Rainy River, Sudbury/Manitoulin and Algoma.

  • Provide information about Developmental Services and Supports in your community
  • Place a person on the waitlist for requested services
  • Inform about other community programs and services that might be useful and interesting
  • Match and link a person to ministry-funded DS when available
