More than 10 per cent of kids in Canada have a disability. That number is expected to grow to one in five in the next generation.

Treatment can change the course of a child’s life.

Our members work as partners to promote collaboration that strengthens the voice of our child development and rehabilitation sector. Together we tackle common challenges, drive advances, and support the consistent high-quality care kids and families deserve.

EKO is a founding member of the Children’s Health Alliance, a collective of Ontario’s eight leading children’s health organizations: CHEO, Children’s Hospital – London Health Sciences Centre, Children’s Mental Health Ontario, Empowered Kids Ontario, Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, Kids Health Alliance, McMaster Children’s Hospital and SickKids. Together we deliver every kind of care a child could need for their developmental, physical, and mental health and well-being. We see how the elements of care can work together to support kids and families no matter what challenges they are facing.
