The Mission Association for Community Living (MACL) was founded in 1958 by a handful of parents who wanted to ensure educational opportunities were available to their children, who were not welcomed in public schools because they had developmental disabilities. The parents developed an educational program and it operated until Special Education classes were created in public schools by the Ministry of Education. From its beginnings as a grassroots family-led organization, MACL has maintained a strong commitment to responding to the needs of individuals and families:
• Supporting children and/or adults to live, learn and work in the community
• Helping the community to welcome and include people
• Advocating for change so that people have better quality lives in their community of Mission
