News on the Ombudsman’s Report

The Ombudsman’s Report from Paul Dubé was released on 24th August, entitled “Nowhere to Turn”, which details the investigation into the Ministry of Community and Social Services’ response to situations of crisis involving adults with developmental disabilities.

As you know from our updates, this investigation was launched almost four years ago and the Toronto Family Network was involved.
