About NBACL

The New Brunswick Association for Community Living (NBACL) is a provincial, non-profit organization that works with and on behalf of children and adults with an intellectual disability and their families.

It is estimated that 22,000 New Brunswickers have an intellectual disability. NBACL receives over 200 requests for assistance every month.

Established in 1957, NBACL works to build inclusive communities where children and adults with an intellectual disability can live, learn, work, and play. We work in areas across the lifespan – from early learning and child care to will and estate planning, changing lives, changing communities, and defending rights. At NBACL, we do “whatever it takes, for as long as it takes.”

New Brunswick will be an inclusive society in which all citizens feel that they belong, and in which all individuals have the means and opportunity to participate in the social and economic life of the province. (NBACL, 1999)

Our staff members work provincially, based out of our six regional offices. Offices are located in: Fredericton (head office), Moncton, Saint John, Edmundston, Bathurst and Miramichi.
