As Juan de Fuca regional residents we share this in common:
We are gravely troubled by the staggering rate and volume of deforestation in our region. We believe that our forests are being grossly mismanaged, and that these lands which should represent our commons have been unjustly expropriated in the name of fast profit for industry shareholders, at the expense of ecological sustainability and what is literally the birthright ground for future generations.
Our vision is two-fold:
The Canadian Cancer Society is a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.
For more information check out their BC website.
The Esquimalt Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC) provides a range of programs and services to address the unique needs of military members and their families. We offer some programs in the Sooke Region directly.
Our mandate covers four main areas:
Personal Development and Community Integration
Services include welcome and relocation assistance, a 24-Hour Information Line, second language courses, support to the Francophone community, and community outreach.
We're a local church that meets in four locations across British Columbia, Canada. As a church, we are compelled by the love of Jesus to be a part of what He is doing in our community and around the world. Our hope is that we can serve you in your journey as you find hope, life, and purpose in Jesus.
Imagine an innovative elder culture that approaches looming issues in sustainability and health care in an entirely new way. Our aim is to provide the mutual support to flourish, living in an optimal range of human functioning for the rest of our lives. Canadian Senior Cohousing combines the well-established international model of senior cohousing with new ideas for active aging here in Canada.
We are an evangelical youth ministry that believes effective children's and youth work is built around relationships.
We serve in partnership with local churches to provide holistic youth resources for children and young people. Within all of our groups we want children and young people to discover the good news of Jesus as they explore the Bible.
Campaigners are reaching out to children and young people with the good news of God's love in Christ.
