Who We Are

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 (FRC) and an Employment Resource (ERC) Centre that provides education, family support, mentorship and inclusive employment. It is our mission to assist the community to understand disabilities.

OUR MISSION

Gateway Association

We are passionate about empowering families and people who live with disabilities to live fully authentic lives. We envision 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, contributing members of their communities.

VISION

Gateway envisions a world where all people are valued, respected members of their communities.

MISSION

Gateway will be a global leader and influencer in community development that looks to our roots and expertise to break barriers for people with disabilities.

PURPOSE

Transformation of community through the lens of disability.
