In response to the shifting routines in our community and world-wide prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a temporary suspension of some of our supports and a gradual reopening of others. Things may seem different in this moment, but our mission remains the same.
Our main concern at this time is to ensure that we continue to provide the best support possible for the people we serve, while continuing to follow directives from our Provincial Government and following guidelines set out by the Public Health Agency of Canada and the Ontario Ministry of Health.

Broadview Village currently supports two SIL programs/sites.
The Supported Independent Living (SIL) program is ideal for adults with an intellectual disability that require minimal and individualized support in areas such as finances, home management and developing community connections. People may opt to live independently or with roommates of their own choosing.
The SIL program is uniquely tailored to each person and his/her/their respective needs. Staff supports are usually minimal (4-6 hours a week) and can be flexible to meet individual needs. Individuals are encouraged to develop a network of supports, engage in their community (through employment, volunteering, or education opportunities) and participate in the Individual Support Plan (ISP) process.
