Passport is a program that helps adults 18 years or older with a developmental disability to participate in their communities. It also helps caregivers of an adult with a developmental disability take a break from their caregiving responsibilities.
The LifeSkills Centre is not directly funded by Passport. We invoice you and provide ample time for you to submit the bill to Passport and receive the funding. When payment is received, the invoice will be marked paid. Invoices can be emailed to you and your payment can be made electronically using e-transfer services through your bank. Access to funding under the program is subject to available resources.
