Just released Ontario Budget announces a promise of a minimum of $5000 to everyone eligible for Passport funds on current waitlist

When the most recent Ontario budget was released earlier this month, families were pleased to see a commitment of a minimum of $5000 to everyone eligible for Passport Funds , currently on the Passport waitlist.  This, in part, addresses the gap in services that occurs when someone turns 18 and their funding disappears as they transition to adult services.  We have lobbied for seamless funding between child and adult services, and hopefully this will help to address this current gap in funding.  With this being an election year, we hope that this commitment will be followed through, regardless of the outcome of the election.
