Mary Wilson became a day-care activist when she enrolled as an SFU student in 1970 and tried to find day care for her daughter. She became a Board member of the Burnaby Mountain Day Care Society and served as the paid coordinator of the campus day care facility for several months between 1973 and 1974. She played a key role in mediating between the various independent day care societies and the University to create SFU's present Childcare Centre.
