Nanaimo Association for Community Living (NACL) is a non-profit society dedicated to supporting people with developmental disabilities. We are run by an Executive Director, who is responsible to a Board of Directors. We have proudly been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitative Facilities (CARF) since 2005.

Both our Vision and Mission Statements were revised in 2016, as follows:


"Building inclusive communities, one bridge at a time."


"A person-centered approach is the way we challenge ourselves, our communities, the people we support, and families to be innovative as we help each other live fulfilled lives."
