The BC Centre for Ability is accredited by CARF International, an independent association focused on health and human services.

We have been serving children, youth, and adults with disabilities, and their families, since 1969, when we were first established as the BC Neurological Association.

Our creation came about because our supporters and families wanted an alternative to hospital or institutional care for people with disabilities – one that was community-focused and family-centred.

We believe that every person is born with the ability to succeed in life, on their own terms.

The BC Centre for Ability’s Foundation is the Centre’s official charitable organization. The Foundation raises awareness and funds to support the highest priority needs of the Centre.

Every dollar donated to the Foundation is invested in the mission of the BC Centre for Ability. Learn more here about how to donate.
