  1. Thank you so much for this! My family is thinking of moving to Ontario and I've been finding it difficult to figure out what I need to make sure my service dog will be allowed with my once I move. This video is very informative and helpful!

  3. I am brand new to this process and do not know where to begin to get my service dog now that I have a letter from my doctor. Is there a company or special person that I need to buy the dog from? Do the dogs come fully trained for my needs? What if you cannot afford a service dog I desperately need one to help you in your every day life? Is there some sort of government or private organization to help you fund getting a service dog? Basically, I need to know everything! Maybe there is a website that I can go to? Can you guide me to some websites that are legitimate or give me some answers to these questions? I would greatly appreciate any help that you can give me.

  4. what about single person comfort pets …anywhere i should look…i am under the impression that a single person can have a pet in an an apartment for something to come home to and it is part of the canadian menal health act … am i wrong….asking because i am single and recently divorced ..( i need something to come home to …lonely) my landlord has stated several times that i cannot have a pet… i believe they are wrong.

  5. My doctor said I should have a service dog for my anxiety is it legal to have a service dog for anxiety in Ontario?

  6. Hi! Thank you for posting a video about this! Just so you know, this is what I found on Ontario.ca. “There are no restrictions on what type of animal can be used as a service animal…”

    Still LOVE the video!!!!! Don’t want you to think I’m being snotty or correcting you, just thought I’d let you know 🙂
