“Our mission is to foster community, honour diversity, recognize strengths, encourage participation and provide opportunities for the people we serve to enjoy a rich and rewarding life.”
As a provincially registered Society, we are governed by the rules and regulations set
out in the British Columbia Societies Act. This also dictates the form of our Constitution
In addition, we are a federally registered charity (qualified donee), regulated by
Revenue Canada. This allows us to solicit donations and issue an income tax
Our Association is governed by a ten person Board of Directors that establishes policy
and sets direction for the organization. The Board is elected from the general
membership at our Annual General Meeting, held each June. The Board meets
monthly, creates committees as required, and day to day operations are delegated to
the Executive Director. Our staff complement of Adult Support Workers have
exceptional skills in many related and unrelated fields, as well as training in Community
Support and/or Health and Personal Care.
Primary funding for community based day programs is provided by Community Living
British Columbia. In addition, the Association may contract with CLBC to provide
individualized service on a one-to-one basis.
Other funds are received through personal donations, B.C. Lotteries Corporation, local
service organizations, Federal government programs and productive enterprise.
