Dear Easter Seals Families,
RE: Recreational Choices Funding Program Discontinued
After a great deal of consideration, Easter Seals Ontario has decided to discontinue the Recreational Choices Funding Program beginning in 2016.
Over the past several years we have experienced a decline in enrollment in this program. In addition, Easter Seals Ontario’s primary focus of service is financial assistance for mobility equipment. For the past several years we have experienced a funding shortfall for this program and have had to put children in need on a waitlist for essential equipment. To be credible and responsible to our donors, Easter Seals needs to ensure that funds are utilized for those who need it the most. The changes being made will allow us to redirect additional funds to this vital need.
We encourage families looking for a recreational experience for their child to consider applying to the Easter Seals’ camping program. Alternately, please check with the Ontario Camps Association at OntarioCampsAssociation.ca for a list of programs that may be suitable for your child.
If you have any questions, please contact our Recreation Department at 416.421.8778 ext. 325 or 1.800.668.6252 ext. 325.
We sincerely regret any inconvenience this change causes.
The Recreation Team
