Appendix 1 – Exceptions

Addiction Services for York Region (ASYR) was not compliant in all areas of its programs and services. Due to staff gapping in some areas and a reduction in presentations, ASYR was unable to achieve its targets in Problem Gambling Awareness.

ASYR was also challenged in 2018-2019 with a large infusion of one-time funds in later part of Q4. With these funds, targets in a number of programs and services was increased. ASYR and its Wellness Collaborative partners worked very hard to achieve additional targets, given the short time frame, we were not successful in all areas.

ASYR is committed to achieving its targets annually and will continue to work hard in providing programs and services to people in need while working to achieve the annual targets that are set out by the funder.
