Brockville & Area Community Living Association supports individuals and families to reach their full potential and enjoy all aspects of community life. We offer several services and supports throughout the communities of Brockville & Areas and the surrounding areas.
Founded in 1983, we operate through the governance of a local volunteer board of directors representing families and individuals who are supported by the Brockville & Area Community Living Association, and the broader community.
