Inclusive Housing Options

Partnerships With Property Owners and Developers

It was only in 1999 when the Government of Ontario officially closed institutions that were built to house people who had intellectual disabilities. Community Living Upper Ottawa Valley was an early adopter of having their residents stay in the community and provisions were made for group living to help keep local people out of the institutions. That opportunity worked well and became a model that helped other agencies across Ontario bring people back home.

Now, CLUOV is once again taking a leadership role in the next stage of full inclusion.

CLUOV works with landlords, home builders, apartment complex owners and leasing companies to give people with intellectual disabilities the choice on where they live. We help secure apartment living, living at a senior 's residence and many other options. Outcomes have been positive in the quality of life for people supported through Community Living.

For property owners and managers who are looking for long-term, reliable tenants, CLUOV would like to hear from you and work on a current or future partnership. please contact Tina Williams at 613-735-0659 ext.104 or
