COMMUNITY

Are you looking to book a workshop, presentation, family-friendly activity, or a fun booth? We offer community engagement services that create awareness, educate, provide resources and funding. Together we build strong partnerships and collaborations with agencies or organizations located in the Kootenay Region of British Columbia including Cranbrook, Castlegar, Creston, Fernie, Golden, Invermere, Nelson, and surrounding communities. 

Prevention of problems like gambling is based on acknowledging and building upon individuals' strengths and therefore healthy communities. By respectfully listening to community needs and supporting grassroot projects, together we can build resilient communities.
