On February 6th, 2019, Minister Lisa McLeod announced that the Ministry of Children, Community, and Social Services will be proceeding with providing all families in or on the Ontario Autism Program wait list with a childhood budget to purchase services from their provider of choice. Over the next few months, our agency will be exploring the feasibility of providing services on a “fee-for-service” basis. We hope to be successful in our endeavor so that we may continue to provide quality support and services to children and youth with an ASD diagnosis into the future.
To help us plan as effectively as possible, we at CSBD have developed a survey so we can better understand the needs of families. This will help ensure that we offer the types of services you may want to purchase in the future. We value your views and welcome your feedback.
The below survey will take about 10 minutes to complete. Your answers are anonymous and will only be used to help us plan our services going forward.
If you would like to be contacted about “fee-for-service” options CSBD may offer in the future, please click below to leave your contact information. Your name will not be tied to your answers to the above survey in any way.

If you have any questions about this survey, please contact a member of our Reception Team at 613-966-7413.
Thank you for your time.
