Latest Update on COVID-19

Some services have reopened, others will remain closed until October 12, 2020 Click here to the full COVID-19 update.

On the advice of Public Health authorities and in compliance with City of Toronto restrictions on gatherings and permitted events, we have cancelled all events across the organization. Our flagship event, Community Rocks, has been postponed from November 2020 to November 2021.

Family Visits: Thanks to our success, we are now able to offer outdoor visits, indoor visits, outings, and essential overnight absences at CLTO sites. Families are invited to reach-out to schedule these opportunities. Please give CLTO staff as much notice as possible to ensure proper staffing and safety procedures in advance of your scheduled visit. These measures remain in effect until October 12, 2020. We will update these restrictions prior to October 12 if permitted to do so by the provincial government

Respite: We will open after-school respite programs at three locations later this month for a small number of participants. This program will operate at significantly reduced capacity due to public health restrictions. Impacted families will hear from CLTO shortly about how to access this smaller-scale program. All participants in after-school respite programs will be subject to active screening requirements and appropriate guidelines regarding physical distancing, hand hygiene, and other public health measures. Overnight respite programs remain closed across CLTO until October 12, 2020. This includes programs at Lawson, McMillan, TREADD, and Ennerdale. We will reopen these programs at reduced capacity before October 12 if possible under provincial guidelines and Public Health restrictions.

We remain unable to reopen large-scale congregate day programs due to provincial and local public health restrictions. Fortunately, we will shortly pilot small-scale Community Participation Supports
(day programs) in three sites across the city.

Our main offices are closed. This includes our head office and central regional office (20 Spadina Rd), our Etobicoke regional office (295 The West Mall), Scarborough regional office (1712 Ellesmere Rd), and North York regional office (1122 Finch Ave West). *Only essential staff are permitted entry to our offices, and anyone entering must wear a mask and be actively screened before proceeding into the building. All in-person training remains suspended across the Association. These measures will remain in effect until October 12, 2020
