Our Community Partners
As a co-operative it is our mandate and goal to co-operate with other community organizations, businesses, and initiatives that are working towards community health and wellness in Victoria. Our aim is to complement and support programs and services that already exist, and to fill in any perceived gaps in order to better serve our communities, and to promote health and wellness in our members and in the general public. We need to work together in order to best serve our populations.
VanCity Credit Union has awarded $10 000 to our health co-op to help fund our Healthy Choices Education Project targeted to marginal or vulnerable populations in Victoria. Skill based workshops will focus on offering education and skills training in stress reduction, recreation, money management, nutrition, etc.
Pacific Rim College (PRC) is now one of VCHC’s community partners! Offering courses, workshops and full degree programs in Chinese and Japanese acupuncture, Western Herbalism and Natural Health, 10% of all fees paid by VCHC members towards PRC programming will be donated to the VCHC Accessibility Fund.
The Good Planet Company and The Good Planet Baby Store are now partners with VCHC in working towards community wellness. These stores both offer a wide range of eco-friendly products that respect the health of the Earth and are sustainably produced.
