SPECIAL NEEDS

All details of special needs must be disclosed at the time of registration to establish program fit. Please note that we cannot provide a support worker. Registered support workers are admitted to Community Courses and Camps free of charge but must have a Police Clearance Check (for children’s classes only). All support workers must register for the course with the box office. The Living Arts Centre is working in partnership with Community Living Mississauga through their Children’s Summer Support Program (CSSP) to offer a limited number of spaces to children with intellectual disabilities in our Summer Camps. Please note that these spaces will be filled only with successful applicants to the CSSP. Confirmation of CSSP acceptance and support must be presented prior to registration at the Living Arts Centre.

Note: Courses offered in the Glass and Wood Studios present increased health and safety concerns due to the environment and machinery used. Minimum skill requirements as well as pre-requisites are required for some courses.
