Annual Report



Ongwanada has been a member of the community for more than 60 years. Our name, an Ojibwa term for "our home", is a fitting symbol for our vision, mission and values.

We support people with developmental disabilities and their families, respecting their rights, increasing their opportunities to make choices and decisions about the quality of their lives and responding to their changing needs.

A non-profit, accredited organization, Ongwanada offers a wide range of individualized services and community supports to approximately 600 people with developmental disabilities and their families in Kingston and Eastern Ontario.

Our funding comes primarily from the provincial Ministry of Community and Social Services and we are governed by a volunteer Board of Governors.

In January 2013, Ongwanada was granted Accreditation with Exemplary Standing from Accreditation Canada, an independent organization which assesses the quality of service of health and developmental services organizations based on national standards of excellence.

What is francokingston.info?
francokingston.info is a web portal intended for the French-speaking population of Kingston, particularly those seeking services for children, youth or families. It provides links to the web sites of agencies offering a range of social services including help for victims of family violence, adults living with a physical or developmental disability, and individuals in need of social assistance.

francokingston.info brings together program information from Kingston social service agencies funded by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services or the Ministry of Community and Social Services. These agencies are working collaboratively in order to increase their collective capacity to provide services in French.
