Mission Statement

     The Adult Enrichment Center is a community-based independent program that supports individuals with developmental disabilities as they pursue their maximum potential in everyday living skills. The individuals come first along with their needs. Each individual will be treated with the respect and kindness that they deserve.

Who We Are

     The Adult Enrichment Center is Sudbury, Ontario’s modern life skills center for adults with developmental and physical disabilities.. The foundation of the programming is based on life skills training enabling the members to become as independent as possible (to their abilities), within their settings and within their community. We provide day programming for adults who have graduated from the education system, or who are looking to continue to grow within our life skills program. We offer individuals with physical& developmental disabilities a happy, bright and safe nurturing surrounding where they continue to develop skills  and enjoy a fun-filled day with friends and qualified staff.  If you know of someone who is looking to build and develop social skills, enhancing lifeskills to their ability then the Adult Enrichment Center is the place. Adult Enrichment Center is a individualized program that provides service for all levels of care and it is based on the individuals needs and abilities!!


Our History


     The Adult Enrichment Center was founded in 2013, in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. The program was designed to help young adults who are transiting from the secondary education system into adulthood or for those who are looking to develop, enhance and introduce new skills that are required on a personal level or within their community. Our management and team focus on top quality, qualified staff, excellent supports and community leadership has allowed it to grow into one of Sudbury’s largest day programs. It was the first privately owned and operated day program in Northern Ontario. We specialize in an individualized program for adults with developmental disabilities.

Our programs main focus is to allow clients to learn, develop and enhance life skills in a home setting.

We also promote independence, volunteering and employment opportunities within the community.

Adult Enrichment Center partnered with YMCA Sudbury in January 2017. This allows individuals to participate within a community based program to learn and develop skills that are required in the workplace. It also promotes health and physical fitness.

Within one year, Adult Enrichment Center expanded and opened a second and third location within the greater city of Sudbury. Two years later, Adult Enrichment Center opened its doors in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario and is now expanding into other Northern and Southern locations.

In addition to our stand-alone centers, Adult Enrichment Center locations can also be found in YMCA locations. Most standard Adult Enrichment Center locations offer services 6 days a week, providing Family Relief and Respite Care Services to our clients.
