Furthermore, private and some not-for-profit providers are not funded by the government and therefore are not subject to regulated Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS) oversight, such as compliance inspections or service expectations that government-funded service providers must adhere to as part of their service contracts.

As per MCCSS's website's recommendation regarding Third Party Providers: 

"You should connect directly with the service provider to fully understand and assess what is being offered. You should consider the following factors when assessing a private or for-profit service provider:

•    Quality of the service
•    Associated service policies (for example, insurance coverage and hiring practices)
•    Any associated fees
•   Whether the service provider and service are acceptable to them and/or meets their personal needs

For information about whether a service provider is government-funded, speak with your local Developmental Services Ontario office and/or the service provider."
