Our History

EST. 1995

The Ontario Organizational Development Program (OODP) was established in 1995 as a government response to requests from AIDS service organizations (ASOs) and programs for long-term organizational development resources.

Our mission is to strengthen the capacity of HIV/AIDS organizations and programs in Ontario to determine their direction with awareness and to foster a culture within HIV/AIDS organizations and programs in Ontario to take responsibility for their own organizational development.

The work of the OODP begins with and is overseen by the Program Administrator. Direct service delivery is provided by consultants with experience and expertise in HIV/AIDS, organizational development, training and facilitation, as well as sensitivity to the realities of ASOs. Our consultants include people living with HIV/AIDS and come from varied cultural identities reflective of the diversity of communities served by AIDS service organizations and programs.

Our services are customized to meet the organizational development needs of HIV/AIDS funded organizations and programs. Our services are primarily delivered in English and we do have some capacity to work in French.
