About Open Access Resource Centre

The Open Access Resource Centre (OARC) is dedicated to enriching the lives of Manitobans with speech impairments through the use of communications devices. The Centre provides information on the types and functions of various devices, and operates an extensive equipment loan program.

Established as a pilot project by the Association for Community Living-Winnipeg (ACL-Winnipeg) in 1989, OARC was incorporated in 1997. In June 2000, the Centre received charitable status. Currently, the Centre receives its operating funds from Manitoba Family Services and Housing.
