The Creating Community Wellness Society is our sister charity, raising funds for the charitable activities of the Co-op. To meet the Canada Revenue Agency’s definition of “charitable” and enable us to provide charitable donation receipts to donors, the activities must be delivered at no cost to the recipient of the service. MSP services are not eligible as we pay for these through our tax dollars. Programs such as Back to Basics, Choices and Members’ Wellness Clinics are eligible. Your donation to support these are other no-fee services for members and community outreach is much appreciated.
The Victoria Health Co-op was a founding member of the Health Care Co-op Federation of Canada (HCCFC) and, through this, is represented at Co-operatives and Mutuals Canada, and the International Health Co-op Organization. We are a member of the BC Co-op Association.
