About Us

The Burnaby Association for Community Inclusion (BACI) is a non-profit organization that has spent over 60 years providing innovative services for children, youth and adults with disabilities and their families in Burnaby and Metro Vancouver. We provide a wide range of innovative supports and services to help people live full lives as included and valued members of their community.

The Co-Executive Team will maintain the effective leadership profile of the Burnaby Association for Community Inclusion within the community of Burnaby and throughout the province of British Columbia.

Design & Innovations

Finding new and better ways of doing things has been part of the fabric of the organization since BACI was founded by families over 60 years ago. Since then, BACI has been pushing boundaries, asking lots of questions, and knowing that there is always room to do things differently. BACI’s commitment to learning and growth has evolved over the years — from shifting towards community-based supports, exploring social enterprise, to the Fifth Space. Social Research and Development has always had a place at BACI. With many different initiatives already up and running, our current focus is on Grounded Space — a collective of organizations focused on finding new ways to ask critical questions, do research, generate alternatives, make & test new ideas, and to continuously iterate.

COVID-19 Response

BACI is committed at all times to ensuring the health and safety of the staff, adults and children we support. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we continually assess our response and planning. We have followed guidance from Public Health, Health Canada, BC CDC, Licensing, MCFD and CLBC in the development of our strategies and ensure that staff receive ongoing training with each update.

Wellness

We are doing our best to continue all of our services offered prior to COVID, but virtually whenever possible. We continue with virtual gatherings, classes and celebrations. We look forward to the time that we can see everyone in person again.

Working Together - Job Opportunities

BACI supports over 1,000 children, youth and adults with developmental disabilities and their families by providing various recreational, training and development opportunities. In addition to our four child care centers, we operate fifteen supported living homes and five multi-unit housing complexes in Burnaby – enabling almost 200 adults with disabilities to live more independent and fulfilling lives.

Our Committees

Committees play a key role in the development of BACI programs and services. Some, such as the Advocacy Committee and BASA, have spearheaded critical initiatives and created change — both locally and provincially — on issues related to community living and the rights of individuals with disabilities.
