Purpose & Mission
MABA is a non-profit organization founded in September of 2005 and officially approved for Affiliate status from the larger Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) in May of 2006. MABA became an Affiliate of the Association of Professional Behavior Analysts (APBA) in August of 2015. MABA is composed of a large body of committed members; and the organization's direction and goals are determined by an elected executive committee and a number of other internal committees. MABA membership is entirely voluntary.
Our mission is to develop and disseminate knowledge about behaviour analysis as a science. MABA's interests lie in basic science focusing on principles governing human and nonhuman behaviour (i.e., the experimental analysis of behavior) as well as applied science focusing on application of those principles for improvement of socially important problems (i.e., applied behaviour analysis), and disseminating this information to stimulate interest in and correct misunderstandings of behaviour analysis.

Journal Seminar Session - CE Event!
In the interest of providing opportunities to attend local events, wherein attendees will be awarded continuing education credits, we would like to offer a Journal Seminar session on Monday, November 2, 2015 @ 6pm at St. Amant. The seminar will be directed by Dr. Kimberley Zonneveld, BCBA-D. Dr. Zonneveld is an Assistant Professor at Brock University, who completed her doctoral degree at the University of Kansas. The seminar session is a joint venture with the Ontario Association for Behaviour Analysis (OntABA), and we hope it will be the first of many more partnerships with our fellow Canadian associations.
Please complete a very short survey (two questions) on potential journal discussion topics. Click here to access the survey!
We will be accepting survey responses until Monday, Sept 14 2015.
CE credits will be free for MABA members. If you are not a member, feel free to sign up so you can attend this great event!
