Building Capacity for Peer-Led Groups

As the only organization in BC devoted exclusively to capacity-development and training for peer support and peer-led groups, PeerNetBC seeks to facilitate the growth and sustainability of diverse peer support and peer-led groups throughout the province, as well as provide peer-related resources to British Columbians. We do not see ourselves as experts who come into communities with predetermined outcomes; rather, we work with our partners to address issues that have been raised from within their own communities. PeerNetBC strives to increase the capacity of individuals, support groups, peer-led groups, and community-based organizations to identify and address issues, and to use their own knowledge and resources to find solutions.

We develop customized workshops on an ongoing basis for community groups and organizations, and also offer open workshops.

Our Open Registration Workshops

Hosted by PeerNetBC, these programs are open to everyone and offer participants a great opportunity to learn and network with people from various community groups and organizations.
