Collective Effort

We recognize the need for collaboration and organized information sharing in a transformed Developmental Services Sector in Ontario.

The Real Xchange was born building on the concept of a Center for Innovation and Quality Supports.

The REAL Xchange is a hub for resources, knowledge exchange and learning – a site where products, tools and services are available to assist organizations to improve services, spark new ideas and where opportunities for partnerships and collaboration are formed.
