  • With Opportunity Comes Possibility

The New Brunswick Association for Community Living works to build inclusive communities where persons with an intellectual or developmental disability can live, learn, work, and play.

The New Brunswick Association For Community Living is a provincial, non-profit organization that works on behalf of children and adults with an intellectual or developmental disability and their families. We work to ensure that people with an intellectual or developmental disability, with the support of their families, have the option to choose the supports they need to live meaningful lives and participate in their communities as valued and contributing members.
