It’s World Suicide Prevention Day

Each year on September 10, a commitment to saving lives brings together communities from across Canada and around the world. Since 2003, World Suicide Prevention Day has served as a call to action to individuals and organizations to prevent suicide. This year, the theme —Connect, Communicate Care — encourages us all to do just that.

Showing care and concern to someone who may be thinking about suicide can make all the difference. Join the Canadian Association of Suicide Prevention and the communities across Canada in working towards the common goal of preventing suicide.

LandlordBC holds 11th Annual Golf Tournament & Charity Fundraiser in support of Covenant House

On August 24th, Landlord held their annual Golf Tournament & Charity Fundraiser to benefit Covenant House Vancouver for the eleventh year.  LandlordBC is British Columbia's top resource for owners and managers of rental housing. They are the largest landlord professional industry association in BC who provide rental owners and managers with education, advocacy, group programs, proprietary tenancy forms, online tools to manage and market properties, networking opportunities and operational advice.

In addition to supporting rental housing initiatives that are vital to the health of housing in our community, LandlordBC is a proud supporter of youth at Covenant House Vancouver.  Every year, LandlordBC CEO David Hutniak and his team spend countless hours off the side of their desks to coordinate a fun day on the golf course to raise vital funds in support of deserving at-risk and homeless young people. With the generous support of their 3,300 members and partners, they have raised over $76,000 so far!

In addition, David himself has joined the Sleep Out movement. On November 17th, he will sleep outside for one night in solidarity with those youth who face many more cold, lonely nights until they find their way through the doors of Covenant House Vancouver. You can learn more about the Sleep Out and make a donation to help David reach his fundraising goal online here.

Thank you to our friends at Landlord BC for raising such an impactful amount of vital funds to help homeless and at-risk youth improve their lives. You are an important member of our family and the rental housing community.

Thanking LandlordBC for supporting Covenant House through their Golf Tournament & Charity Fundraiser

We are excited to share that we have recently launched our new online donation form. Our old online donation form was slow to process donations and not as user friendly as we would have liked.

Our new online donation form features:

  1. Mobile & user friendly design
  2. Distinct landing pages for different types of donations
  3. E-cards for in memory and in honour giving
  4. New and improved monthly giving area

As with any new system implementation there are bound to be a few bumps in the road and your patience is appreciated. If you experience any difficulties donating please call us at 604-638-4438.

Our new online form is available from any of the donate buttons on our website or can be found here.

Happy Giving!
