Children's disABILITY Services


To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to protect families and staff, most Children’s disABILITY Services (CDS) staff will be working away from the office. CDS is taking steps to follow recommended social distancing measures, while adjusting our practices to maintain family support services.

  • CDS staff will be reducing the need for in-person meetings at this time.
  • Families should continue to contact their community service workers via telephone and email to plan for services, and staff continue to monitor their phone messages.
  • For immediate needs, families should contact the new CDS call centre at 1-844-805-0004. The call centre is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Community service workers are available during this time to provide immediate assistance.
  • In-person child development, autism outreach, and behavioural psychology services are suspended until further notice. For families open to these services, staff remain available to consult by phone. The autism outreach/St.Amant Autism Programs Parent Information Sessions are suspended.
  • Respite services continue to be available. However, families are advised to cancel services if their child is ill or at heightened risk of exposure to COVID-19.
  • The Materials Distribution Agency (MDA) will continue making deliveries of equipment and supplies. Please contact MDA at 204-945-3000 or 1-800-561-8313 if you have any questions about the delivery of your order.
