At Vancity, we’ve made a few new videos about our community investment work that I want to share.
A couple of months back, I shared our excellent video about the historic Save On Meats in Vancouver. We’ve made a second in that series, about our financing the Sheet Metal Workers Training Centre. Check it out.
We also have a video about an amazing local project, the Vancouver Native Housing Society Skwachays (pronounced Sqwa-chai-z) Healing Lodge, located in downtown Vancouver.
And finally a video called In Search of Space: a Guide to Social Purpose Real Estate. Social purpose real estate is something my team is very focused on. Helping not for profit organizations own their buildings, often by combining forces and sharing space with other like-minded organizations. This can create exciting hubs bringing together organizations with similar missions, like those focused on delivering social services or arts groups.
