Area 86 – Western Ontario

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share their experience, strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

The business of AA continues to be done and many of our service workers, at every level, ought to be commended for their tremendous efforts. Thank you to all of AA’s essential service workers! More members are needed for a variety of positions. Members with 9 months to 35 years of sobriety are encouraged to participate in service events and to say yes to service positions as they become available.
