Helping people make connections is our passion. People who have strong connections to others have improved health, and communities where people are connected are healthier places to live. We provide training, information and resources for strengthening peer support groups and peer-led initiatives throughout British Columbia. We work with many diverse groups and communities including First Nations, rural, urban, multicultural, youth and online. PeerNetBC is a non-profit, registered charitable organization.
PeerNetBC has a wealth of resources to share with individual people, peer support groups and peer-led initiatives. One of the main ways we help people to connect is through our workshops. We provide open registration workshops that are available directly to the public and customized workshops created to meet the needs of specific groups and agencies across the province.
PeerNetBC workshops are designed to be accessible and useful for people at differing levels of skill and experience. We offer a range of courses every spring and fall with the aim to address a variety of learning needs. Be sure to check out our upcoming workshops.
For community groups or agencies interested in PeerNetBC’s customized workshops, check out our list of potential workshop topics.

Following up the success from our citizenU project, PeerNetBC is once again offering our highly requested Historical Tour of Vancouver. This is done through a social justice lens, looking at flashpoints in Vancouver’s storied history.
On this free tour, we’ll explore some places in Vancouver that you might not have encountered before. We’ll explore themes of diversity, equality and inclusion in Vancouver’s past, present and future. And we’ll ask some tough questions about what we can all do to make Vancouver a better place.
The stories we’ll share are just a few small pieces of Vancouver’s history and culture. We hope that you’ll share your own stories as well. What do you love about Vancouver? What do you want to change? Imagine that it’s fifty years from now—what stories will be told on a tour like this?
There will be 3 stops on the tour, leaving from the SFU Harbor Centre campus at 515 west hastings and returning to there at the end of the tour. This tour includes a FREE bagged lunch.
Please contact PeerNetBC at 604-733-6186 or email us firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the tour.
