Between 2015 and 2018, the ISHRS was a partnership between the Ministry of Community and Social Services (MCSS) and the 20 agencies that provide intervenor services, towards the transformation of Intervenor Services in Ontario.

The overall goal of the ISHRS was to professionalize intervenor services, increase the availability of highly skilled staff, and improve the quality of intervenor services delivery to adults living with deafblindness in Ontario. 

In the final year of the strategy, the ISHRS collaborated with MCSS and Intervenor Services agencies concerning a plan for sustainability.  As of April 2018, the work and leadership of the ISHRS will be sustained through existing networks and partnerships, including the Deafblind Network of Ontario.  Visit us at
