This body was created to stream-line the process of supplying service to those people and families who require Government supporting dollars to secure or maintain a decent quality of life. Its mandate is to ensure that the system is fair to all with no one getting preferential treatment because of his or her position in the community.


As a result, no one who is diagnosed with an intellectual disability is eligible for Provincial assistance at even the local level without submitting a detailed application to this body (the DSO). The DSO will then screen all applicants to ensure they are qualified to receive support and will determine exactly what form that support will take.


When an agency declares it has a vacancy (residential or hours of support), the DSO will be advised. The DSO will then give the agency a description of a person whom it believes is an appropriate replacement to fill the vacancy. The name may or may not be a ‘local’ candidate.

The agency will then study the application, interview the proposed candidate and finally decide whether or not it can provide the required support to the person applying.
