The Voice of Children’s Rehabilitation Centres
Since 1978, the Ontario Association of Children’s Rehabilitation Services (OACRS) has represented the interests of Children’s Rehabilitation Centres in Ontario. Through our services as a membership organization, we provide a powerful united voice for our member centres and deliver leadership by influencing policy, programs and funding to maximize the potential for all children and youth facing physical, communication and/or developmental challenges. Currently, OACRS represents all 21 Children’s Treatment Centres in Ontario.
OACRS is committed to advancing an integrated, inclusive and family-centred sector. OACRS’ members provide innovative therapies and extensive treatment options to 65,000 children with physical, developmental and communications needs annually in cities, towns and rural areas across the province.
Our partners in children’s rehabilitation include the Ministries of Children and Youth Services, Community and Social Services, Education and Health and Long-term Care. Together our members provide over $185 million of services on a yearly basis.
