The Burlington Association for the Intellectually Handicapped (BAIH) is Burlington's oldest and largest non-profit agency, founded in 1955. Its mission is to ensure all individuals with an intellectual handicap enjoy a meaningful life within their community by providing a wide range of services to approximately 350 individuals and their families in the City of Burlington.
NCS is a Canadian service provider offering voice, video and data solutions and services to both public and private sector organizations across the country.
NCS aspires to the highest level of professionalism and integrity and develops customer relationships based on trust earned through the services and solutions it delivers. As part of that commitment, NCS regularly participates with the communities it serves undertaking projects that benefit and support local organizations. Recently, NCS in conjunction with Systimax, donated all the equipment and the installation services required to provide the Burlington Association for the Intellectually Handicapped with a new communications network.
BAIH partners with many different organizations throughout the Halton Region and Ontario. The new network donated by NCS will provide communication among these different groups and will help the agency become more accessible and efficient in its work. Up to date information can be shared with the Region as well as the Ministry of Community and Social Services and internal communications will now be easily available to employees. This is extremely beneficial to BAIH as many staff are off site and support individuals in their homes. ÂI am hoping that with this network system in place, everyone that works at BAIH will have a mechanism to seek out information about the agency and the ability to communicate with one another at their finger tips. This "state-of-the art" communication system provided by NCS will deliver a quality of service and reliability that will improve the level of service we can provide to the people we support,Â says Judy Pryde, Executive Director, BAIH.
