Community Living Ajax-Pickering & Whitby

Please note: Not all employers provided information about their positions and application processes. Please visit their websites for more details.

Community Living Ajax-Pickering And Whitby Mission

Community Living Ajax-Pickering and Whitby is dedicated to supporting people with developmental disabilities so they can live full lives and be effectively, safely and inclusively supported in their own communities.  We serve that mission by offering a broad range of personalized supports and services, closely aligned with their individual goals and choice of where they want to live, learn, work and enjoy their leisure time.

Our Vision:  Inspiring Dreams, Possibilities and Inclusion

Community Living Ajax-Pickering and Whitby envisions a society where everyone belongs – living in a state of dignity, sharing meaningfully and safely in all elements of community life and having opportunities to participate effectively.  In our future vision, there is genuine inclusion for all.

We see people pursuing their goals and dreams, well-satisfied with their lives.  We strive to build a community where anyone with a developmental disability enjoys equal rights, respect and acceptance, a  sense of self-worth, and opportunities for growth.  In this future, the abilities, uniqueness and innate value of each person are celebrated, supported and acknowledged as essential to the completeness of the whole community.  We will do whatever we can, within our means, to help make this vision a reality.

Our vision for CLAPW as an organization is to be a recognized and innovative leader in the delivery of services, offering a comprehensive spectrum of relevant supports and services to people with developmental disabilities.  This cannot be accomplished without a close partnership joining staff and families in a circle of support around each person.  We also aspire to be a  model for quality, innovation and accountability in our service sector and across the organization.

Service Values:  We believe in and make critical decisions based on the organization’s core commitments to…

A mission defined by a person-centred focus and culture of respect.  CLAPW’s fundamental purpose stems from the needs of the individual people we support, their dreams and their preferences.  We take care not to impose our own personal notions of what makes a life fulfilling.  At the same time, we remain ever-mindful of the safety and well-being of those we support.  This includes being safe from harm or abuse of any kind, as well as empowering supported individuals to make choices within safe environments.  Caring and respect are the foundations for all we do.

Purposeful pursuit of meaningful inclusion for those we support.  The agency’s commitment to access and inclusion flows from its response to an individual’s dreams, goals and need for supports within an environment of understanding – one that makes everyone feel valued, wanted and socially accepted.  Through our work, and by example, we help build a culture premised on these values: consideration of one another, recognizing each other’s differences, and treating others the way we would wish to be treated.

Always acting with honesty, integrity, transparency and accountability.  Honesty, integrity and transparency provide the foundation for trusted leadership and relationships.  Accountability is not a one-time thing – it’s an all-time thing, and applies across the organization.  We believe in doing the right thing, whether it’s noticed or not, even when it may be unpopular. Strong governance and leadership based on these principles will ensure the organization is capable, well managed and effective in providing services.

The Canadian Liver Foundation (CLF) was the first organization in the world devoted to providing support for research and education into the causes of liver disease.

Founded in 1969, the Canadian Liver Foundation was established by a group of doctors and business leaders concerned about the increasing incidence of liver disease and the escalating number of deaths resulting from these serious ailments. Throughout the Foundation’s 49+ years, it has served as a model for similar organizations around the world.

Today, the Canadian Liver Foundation continues to actively support and encourage doctors and scientists to pursue their objectives in the field of hepatology research across Canada. In addition, the CLF has expanded its activities to not only address the needs of patients and their families, but also to promote awareness and a better understanding of liver disease among the general public.
Volunteers are the backbone of the Canadian Liver Foundation. At all levels of participation, they offer an abundance of resources, including: knowledge, skill, passion, contacts, time, and effort. Volunteers are essential to the Canadian Liver Foundation's success as they spread public awareness, educate, develop and organize events, and raise money towards fighting liver disease.

Protecting children and strengthening families

The Catholic Children’s Aid Society of Toronto (CCAS) has been protecting children from physical, emotional, sexual abuse and neglect for more than 110 years. Mandated under the Child and Family Services Act and funded by the Government of Ontario, CCAS is the second largest child welfare agency in greater Toronto.

When we receive a call concerning abuse or neglect of a child, our staff investigates, assesses the risk to the child and if needed, develops a plan to keep the child safe. In most cases, we are able to work with families to address safety concerns while keeping the child at home.

Background

The Society first opened its doors in 1894 as the St. Vincent de Paul Children’s Aid Society to address community concerns over the needs of orphans and neglected children. We began with one paid employee, and grew rapidly to meet the increasing needs of the Catholic population. Today, CCAS employs approximately 580 full-time staff, including more than 350 child protection workers. Learn more about our history here.

Our Catholic Identity

CCAS benefits from the many supports provided by local parishes, Catholic schools, Catholic service agencies and community organizations providing services to our children and families. We recognize the importance of Catholic values and linkages with the larger Catholic community.
