COncord In the City
Etobicoke and Brampton
A Charity for job, education and housing solutions for people with intellectual disabilities
Concord in the City Community Ability Initiative is a charitable organization. Our focus is on supporting adults with intellectual disabilities to gain job skills, independence, and working towards permanent housing. Our daily program in Etobicoke and Brampton offers a 3:1 ratio running from 8:30 am to 4:00pm.
Concord has a mask and vaccine mandate for all staff, participants and volunteers. This policy is for the safety of participants, family and community at large.
Kevin Troake and Melissa Ray started Concord in the City in 2013. Kevin taught for 10 years with the Peel Board and has a specialist in Special Education. Melissa has a Masters in Child and Youth Care with a focus on disabilities.

Unity for Autism
Concord is very lucky to have been given a grant by Unity for Autism. With this we have purchased our own mobile coffee shop which will facilitate jobs and job skill building for our participants.
Canadian Tire Jumpstart
This donation insures we can keep our participants active, healthy, and improving fine motor skills.
As Concord in the City relies on fee for service payment to cover program costs, funds raised through CanadaHelps.org will support participants to receive the best services possible. Your donation will assist them to move towards improved physical and mental health through job training,exercise, Music and Arts programs and special outings.
