The  Life Skills Day Program is an innovative farm-based day program for adults with special needs, particularly those with cognitive delays. The program currently runs weekly on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday year round, with additional days to be added in the future. Sunrise provides the opportunity for participants to practice and learn new skills in a supportive, safe and structured environment. Activities are designed to match participants’ capabilities, with the goal of having of each participant reach and work at their fullest potential.

Activities include, but are not limited to:
• Animal care and handling
• Farm activities and stable management
• Gardening
• Field Trips
• Crafts
• Seasonal projects

All interested applicants are required to come to Sunrise for an intake meeting with the Life Skills Coordinator. This meeting allows for the Life Skills Coordinator and the applicant to meet each other as well as determine goals which the interested applicant would like to work towards. After the intake, applicants are able to book a trial day to observe and participate in various activities to assess whether the Scotiabank Life Skills Day Program will meet the needs and personal goals of the participant.
