Mayne Islanders reach out to their friends and neighbours who need a hand.
We're here to help
The Mayne Island Assisted Living Volunteer Program was developed by islanders as a way of connecting people who need some assistance to remain independent with people who are willing to offer that assistance. Our services are not just for seniors, but are available to all Mayne Islanders at no cost.
Thank you to our recent Donors -

Our annual Honour a Life Celebration was held at the Japanese Gardens on Friday, December 11th at 4:30.
It was a magical evening of music and remembrance of people and pets lost to us. MIALS wishes to thank the Japanese garden committee and the Lions for their ongoing support of our organization.
A special thanks, too, to Jessica Easton, for her meditation that evening.

"It is not hyperbole to say that MIALS would not exist or operate without its dedicated community of volunteers who contribute their time to help our clients in a variety of ways.
Over the coming months, to mark and celebrate MIALS’ 10th anniversary, this column will share stories both of our volunteers and of our clients. For this issue, we spoke to one of the three founders of MIALS and an active volunteer today, Cilla Brooke, and her husband and equally active volunteer, Dennis Watts."
