On Friday December 8, 2017, Central West Specialized Developmental Services (CWSDS) and Community Living Oakville (CLO) celebrated two partnered initiatives made possible by the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF). CWSDS and CLO have received two grants from the OTF for two projects. One of the projects is to provide pre-employment training to individuals supported with developmental disabilities while the other project focuses on assessing and enhancing the quality of life for individuals supported by these agencies. During the celebration, Members of Provincial and Federal Parliament, executive directors from CWSDS and CLO, the Ontario Trillium Foundation Grant Review Team Member and individuals from both agencies spoke to give thanks and discuss the important impacts of these initiatives.
