BACI was thrilled to win the Not-for-Profit Organization of the Year Award at the 16th annual Burnaby Business Excellence Awards on November 5th, 2015.
Hosted by the Burnaby Board of Trade and the City of Burnaby, this award recognizes the “organization that has made an outstanding contribution to the Burnaby community and its citizens, and in doing so has made Burnaby a better place to live, work and play.”
At the Awards event, BACI Executive Director Tanya Sather thanked the BBOT for recognizing non-profits as a key part of the thriving Burnaby economy, and recognized the other nominees for the great work that they do. She also thanked Mayor Corrigan and the City of Burnaby for their Social Sustainability Plan and their Pillar of Inclusion that demonstrates their shared value “to create a society that includes all people.”
Tanya recognized BACI’s long-standing history and support to individuals with developmental disabilities, and the contributions of the many people who make BACI the great organization that it is – individuals, families, staff, Board members, and community partners.
