ACDS Response to PDD Consultation Questions

January 14, 2020


Achieving Sustainability is ACDS' response to the questions recently posed by the Alberta government to community disability service providers to help address challenges in the Persons with Developmental Disabilities (PDD) program:

  1. How can the PDD program create room for caseload growth?
  2. What can be done to address pressures associated with the exceptional growth of individuals with complex service needs?
  3. Is there merit to encouraging particular service models (e.g., FMS) or exploring new, innovative delivery approaches (e.g., hybrid models)?
  4. How can we reduce "red tape" and maximize operational efficiency to ensure investments support desired outcomes?
