VCHC is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit co-op working to enhance the health and wellness of its Member-Owners and the wider community.

Victoria Community Health Co-operative (VCHC) is a group of individuals who are passionate about well-being for ourselves and our community. We have joined together voluntarily to organize and support wellness programs for members and the wider community to educate and empower individuals, so they may have a greater say in their wellness journey. We bring together wellness practitioner members from many disciplines and members to benefit from their treatments, as well as community healthcare services to support the diverse needs of our community in Greater Victoria, British Columbia.

The Co-op hosts a number of educational events, workshops and social activities for both Co-op Members and the public.

We invite you to explore the calendar and share any event with your friends, family and communities!

Practitioner Services: Wellness practitioners support Co-op Members through a variety of wellness services – kinesology, accupressure, and more. 

Health & Wellness Education

Our aim is to support our Members in understanding and adopting healthy behaviours for optimal wellness through a range of programs primarily offered by practitioners and community educators.

We work with community partners to offer new and recurring programs that can be tailored for a very specific or wide range of individuals and groups.

Community Outreach

Focusing on the social determinants of health, we advocate for solutions to community health challenges, inequities, and disparities.

We collaborate with local, provincial, and national non-profit organizations, committees, and groups to identify and develop opportunities that contribute to community health and wellbeing.
