We are dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of the individuals we support with dignity and respect. We promote the rights of all individuals to full inclusion in partnership with our community.
Our vision to be a community where all people with disabilities have equal opportunities to lead active fulfilling lives and recognized as contributing members of the community.
The Parksville and District Association for Community Living (PDACL) has been serving the community since 1959 by supporting adults with developmental disabilities through innovative programs, person centered planning and advocacy, to enhance the lives of all people in the community.
