Assistance for Children with Severe Disabilities


I'm looking for the number of families in Windsor, Ontario who receive funding from the Ontario-based “Assistance for Children with Severe Disabilities” program <http://www.children.gov.on.ca/htdocs/English/topics/specialneeds/disabilities/index.aspx>. Is this something that Statistics Canada collects explicitly and could provide, or would it need to be requested through other (provincial) sources? I suspect that data for either the city or the CMA would be acceptable (as long as we know which it is).


We don't collect that data explicitly. We may collect some indirectly through our disability or health surveys, but probably not enough to give an accurate picture. Your best bet would be with the provinces.
