MONTREAL, April 20 /CNW Telbec/ - The MAB-Mackay Rehabilitation Centre (MMRC) wishes to take the opportunity provided by Volunteer appreciation Week to recognizes the tremendous contributions of its volunteers. In 2010, more than 500 registered volunteers gave over 25,000 hours helping clients and assisting in our various programs and services. The MMRC counts an average of 6,000 clients among them children and adolescents with motor or language impairments or communication disabilities, as well as people of all ages who are deaf or hard of hearing or who are visually impaired.
The mission of the MMRC is to help maximize the autonomy and participation of clients with the intention of improving their quality of life. By using a participative and interdisciplinary approach, this mission is achieved through specialized and ultraspecialized adaptation, rehabilitation and social integration services for people with a significant and persistent disability.
Two schools of the English Montreal School Board are located on the site of the MMRC: the Philip E. Layton School and the Mackay Centre School.
