CLKD Strategic Plan 2021-2026

In September 2019, the Community Living Kingston and District board launched a process to renew its strategic plan with a refreshed mission, long-term vision and service values for the organization. It also identified some key strategic priorities to anchor and guide CLKD’s activities over the next five years and beyond.
After a close look at the organization’s existing mission, vision and values, the review examined key strategic choices, new trends, pressures, evolving needs and expectations. In turn, action objectives were developed to support the identified strategic priorities.

The following strategic plan is the product of that work.

Quality Assurance Measures (QAM) Compliance

As part of the developmental services (DS) transformation, the government passed the Services and Supports to Promote the Social Inclusion of Persons with Developmental Disabilities Act, 2008 (SIPDDA). The government also set out in Ontario Regulation 299/10-Quality Assurance Measures (QAM) requirements under SIPDDA that promote social inclusion for individuals with developmental disabilities.

Under the authority of SIPDDA, the Ministry of Community and Social Services (MCSS) has the authority to inspect Developmental Services Agencies across Ontario. Compliance inspections confirm whether the agency is complying with the minimum standards outlined in Ontario Regulation 299/10 Quality Assurance Measures (QAM) and the associated Policy Directives.
