Sudbury Developmental Services is a non profit agency that serves more than 400 individuals with developmental disabilities in the  Greater Sudbury and Sudbury East districts, and is funded by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services.

In 1953, a group of proactive and progressive parents formed the Sudbury and District Association for Retarded Children, which is now known as Sudbury Developmental Services.  The name change better reflects and focuses on who we are and the individuals we serve.

Our service provision consists of Community Participation Day Programs, Residential Services and Respite Care Services for individuals who are aged 18 and over.

The Agency has a volunteer Board of Directors of twelve (12) Members, an Executive Director and a Management team that oversees the daily operations.  The staffing complement comprises of more than 200 employees who work full time, part time and casual hours.

Sudbury Developmental Services is committed to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) and a Zero tolerance for Abuse, QAM Regulation 299/10.

In order to participate or have access to one of our Services, you must contact the Developmental Services Ontario – Northern Region office.
