  • rsvped for MVA Faith Luncheon 2019-02-14 11:11:29 -0800

    MVA Faith Luncheon

    Join us on February 19th as we launch Metro Vancouver Alliance’s Faith Caucus.

    This luncheon will be an opportunity to build relationships with clergy and lay leaders from various faith traditions across Metro Vancouver. Together we will explore the values that motivate us to act together for the common good.

    What’s on the menu? We will feed you lots of good stories about the meaningful impact that broad based faith organizing has had on Canadian society. (There will also be food, of course!) Come with an appetite to relate with one another, and we promise that you will walk away with more than enough material for a great sermon or reflection! 

    This event is open to current and prospective MVA members. RSVP required online at, by email at, or by phone at 778 883-5934. Please make note of any dietary restrictions you may have.

  • Support Program for Newcomers to Canada!!

    As part of a study looking at social inclusion, a group in the Counselling Psychology department at the University of British Columbia is running a counselling support program for newcomers to Canada. The program will focus on supporting new immigrant and refugee young adults as they transition to adulthood in Canada. We are looking for individuals between the ages of 18-34 who are facing challenges around the transition to Canada- could be related to relationships/family, employment, schooling, cultural barriers, anything! We do ask that individuals participate as a dyad (two individuals) and can be in the forms of spouse, partner, friend or family member (other than a parent).

    If you or anyone you know would be interested in this free support program or have any questions, please contact me at:

    Many thanks,
    Vanessa (member of GCBC)
