Mainstream offers services to promote independence and develop skills for Niagara individuals with Passport Funding through the Ministry of Community & Social Services.


About the Passport Program

We work with individuals to create an individualized plan to best support personal goals with a person-centred approach.

We offer a wide range of supports to help individuals utilize the funding they receive.

Program Goals

Passport is a program that helps adults 18 years or older with a developmental disability to participate in their communities.

The key goals are:

  • To promote independence by developing skills and increasing abilities
  • Increase participation in the community
  • Promote social inclusion and broaden social relationships

Program Objectives

Passport provides funding for services and supports so adults with a developmental disability can:

  • Take part in community classes or recreational programs
  • Develop work, volunteer and daily life skills
  • Hire a support worker
  • Create their own person-centred plans to reach their goals
  • Get temporary respite for their caregivers
Mainstream provides three types of Passport Services. Individuals can chose to purchase:

  •  Centred based day program support
  •  Individualized Support
  •  Accounting Support


Person Centred planning and goal identification are central to each type of support.
