Core Competencies

Coming Soon!

Core Competencies are the values, traits and behaviours that people demonstrate when directly or indirectly supporting people with a developmental disability to live more inclusive and fulfilling lives in the community.

The Core Competencies for Developmental Services were first developed in 2008 and since then they have been adopted in over 150 DS Agencies across Ontario.

The DS Workforce Initiative, Core Competency Sub- Committee  is currently working updating and modernize the Core Competencies that reflect next generation expectations (e.g., individualized supports and Person-Directed Planning)

This updated work is scheduled to be complete in September of 2022
