About Us

We support adults with developmental disabilities to live an independent and inclusive life in their community.

Using a Person Centered Approach, we help individuals develop life visions and goals and then work with them, their family and friends to find the right supports and services to achieve their desired future.

35 years of experience

Our 35 years of experience and highly motivated employees will provide a safe environment for your loved one in four programs: residential, Supported Independent Living, Home Share and Community Participation Support.

The individuals in our care are supported through four core programs which include:  Residential Homes, Home Share, Supported Independent Living (SIL) and our Day Support Program.

For over 35 years, OCL has worked with families to ensure their loved one is receiving the care and support they require to lead independent and enriched lives.

OCL provides encouragement and opportunities that will promote self-development and foster interdependent relationships with other members of the Ottawa community.

As a non-profit organization, OCL works in partnership with generous donors, civic-minded corporations and the Province of Ontario to ensure financial sustainability.
