In 1975, a group of passionate parents fought to open doors for their children. Gateway Association emerged as the “Gateway to a better life” they envisioned for people with disabilities and their families.
Gateway is a family resource centre and an employment resource centre that provides education, family support, mentorship and inclusive employment. It is our mission to assist the community to understand disabilities.
Gateway envisions a community where all children grow within a family; all children learn together in neighbourhood schools; all adults work at real jobs in the community; all adults have real homes and real friends; and all people are valued, respected members of their communities.

Each year we support hundreds of families and people who live with disabilities. We have since 1975. It has always been a priority that our services and supports be completely free or largely subsidized. Thank you to the many leaders in our community who have generously offered the donations, gifts in kind, funding, and volunteer hours that make our work possible. We are grateful!
