Welcome!


This website is designed to assist persons with disabilities and/or their families by providing information on resources and services that can help improve the quality of life for everyone involved.

We want you to be aware of what is available in the Durham community; however, not everyone will qualify for all services and some services may not meet your needs or be available to you immediately for a variety of reasons.

Even if you live outside Durham Region, have a look through the site as many services and resources extend beyond our boundaries to other areas.

Every effort has been taken to ensure that the information is accurate and current and we will update the data on a regular basis. If you notice something that is inaccurate, outdated, incomplete or missing, please let us know by clicking on the "Contact Us" tab above.

This website is provided to you courtesy of the Durham Region Employment Network (DREN) with support from the Durham Workforce Authority.

New Travel Section Added

In 2012-2013 the Durham Region Employment Network surveyed 165 businesses on accessibility in preparation of the 2015 Pan Am/Para Pan Games coming to Toronto. The research is available online in PDF version http://www.disabilitydoorway.com/uploads/1369671844-DREN_s_Are_We_Ready_Survey_Final.pdf. If you would like an alternate format in Word or a hardcopy please email us at dren(at)dren.org

One of the recommendations from the research was to add a section to Disability Doorway to list accessible businesses in Durham Region. Visit our new Travel section where we will list accessible features of businesses in Durham Region that were recommended by YOU! Want to add a business? Contact us a dren@dren.org
