The group incorporated itself as the Almonte Community Development Corporation Inc. (ACDC) on December 9th, 1975. ACDC constructed 12 family units on Norton Street. This first project was completed in 1978 and named the Gail Thomson Residences in honour of one of the founding members of ACDC.
For more than four decades, we have continued to respond to community needs through seniors services, affordable housing and developmental services.
In preparing for the new millennium, the Corporation decided to change the name of the organization to reflect the amalgamation of Almonte, Pakenham and Ramsay townships into what is now known as Mississippi Mills. The goal was also to recognize Stanley Mills, one of its founding members and past Chair. We became Mills Community Support Corporation (MCS).
