West Vancouver Community Foundation
Vital Signs 2017 – West Vancouver 
Monday, November 19, 2018
6:45 pm – 9:00 pm

Our population is aging, our younger residents are on the decline, and the proportion of low income residents is growing just as the average price of a detached home last year hit $3.1 million. Those are just a few of the fascinating facts revealed in 2017 Vital Signs, an investigative study by the West Vancouver Community Foundation. CEO Adine Mees will share insights in November on belonging, diversity, inclusion and housing in our beautiful West Vancouver.

Indigenous Water Initiatives
Candace Cook
RES’EAU-WaterNET

Access to clean drinking water is a pressing challenge faced by many small and rural communities across Canada. Small drinking water treatment systems serve millions of people in North America and require a unique solution, not simply a scaled down version designed for urban centers. RES’EAU – WaterNET’s Community Circle Model for Strategic Innovation aims to address the issues inherent to this issue, with a specific emphasis on community involvement and mutual understanding. By uniting the collaborative efforts of end-users, community leadership, government, industry, and university researchers, this approach is working to develop socially and technologically sustainable drinking water outcomes across BC.

Candace Cook is a Research Engineer working on Indigenous and rural drinking water initiatives in her role with RES’EAU – WaterNET. Currently based out of the Vancouver, she is a graduate of Civil Engineering from the University of Ottawa, with a background working on First Nations projects in both the private and public sectors.

Welcome to CFUW BC Council’s 2018 AGM

CFUW North Vancouver welcomes you to this year’s AGM. Most of you will need to cross a bridge to ‘connect to’ our conference. Our hope is that by the end of the weekend you will also have bridged gaps in your knowledge and have created connections with other CFUW members. We are pleased to have been able to include a number of keynote speakers on topics relevant to our BC Council advocacy goals from the last few years. In addition, many of these speakers have been willing to lead workshops, which will enable participants to form deeper connections to the various topics. We anticipate that our program will assist you in expanding your understanding of social issues relevant to CFUW policies and begin to create action plans in your communities.

Of course, there also will be time for socializing and having fun. We hope you enjoy this year’s Conference and AGM.
