Update: The Closure of Sheltered Workshops:

On November 29th 2015 Moira Welsh, investigative news reporter from the Toronto Star reported, “Ontario will eliminate provincially funded workshops where people with intellectual disabilities do menial tasks for pennies a day, says a top official with Ontario's Ministry of Community and Social Services.” The decision is the strongest statement yet from the Ministry following a Toronto Star series exposing the problem with Sheltered Workshops. Initially, the government announced there would be no new admissions to the workshops. Now the province plans to close Sheltered Workshops forever.

ARC Transformation Success Stories: 

Susan's story                                                        Adam's story

Let’s stop the use of the “R” word! 

Matt currently attends Community Living Burlington’s Start It Right Program and ARC Industries. His sister, Mairi, a grade 9 teacher, was frustrated that students in her class were continually using the “R” word to tease each other so she created a short video. “When you use the R word, you not only hurt the young man in this video, you also hurt me…because this is my brother”
