Community Involvement & Collaboration

PACE has a long history of partnering to efficiently and effectively deliver and coordinate services for people with disabilities; to raise the profile of services for adults with disabilities; and to ensure stakeholders recognize and understand the value of personal support services for people with disabilities in Ontario.

Senior Leadership Team members participate in a number of provincial, regional and multiple sub-regional and Ontario Health Team tables. PACE leverages these opportunities to advocate for the needs of adults who have disabilities and increase awareness about the system contributions made by the independent living sector.
