Important note for residents of Ontario:
The Access Intervenor Service (AIS) is a new online portal that was launched to help people who are Deafblind to access services in an easier, more equitable way. On October 3, 2022, the AIS portal opened to allow a single point of access to services for people who are Deafblind looking to access service for the first time.
The system provides navigational supports for users to find services while ensuring that these supports and services are assessed uniformly across the province.
