In August 2011, we added the PSI (Personalized

require support during the week in a variety of areas.

In September 2014 we added 2 new programs. Our Girl Talk program and Dinner Night.
We completed our first accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) under the Employment and Community Services program in Nov 2015.
In May 2015 the community requested a Youth After School Program so our Adventure Club was created! Please see the Youth Program page.
Since then, we have been working with MCFD to create some 1-1 programs for children and youth needing support.
We have developed a Youth Residential Program and are always interested in being innovative and creative in what is needed for families.
Why the name?: We have been asked on a few occasions why the did we chose the name Bonaventure Support Services. The navy is a big part of Andy's family and the HMCS Bonaventure was Canada's last aircraft carrier. The ship never saw front line combat during her career. She was primarily a support ship for the Royal Canadian Navy in a variety of ways. The HMCS Bonaventure supported it's navy community in numerous ways over her lifetime.
We strive to support our community in various ways as well!
Thanks for visiting and we hope to hear from you soon.
