BC Communities is now your vacation planner for socially conscious travel* (or travel with a social conscience*) in British Columbia. Whether on vacation, or stay-cation, we are your source for unique events so you can “Plan to Participate!” while you travel through our amazing BC Communities.

We recognized a need for an event planner for vacationers in BC that focused on the groups and organizations that provide excellent services and support to our BC Community citizens – yet often do not have the funds for advertising or media promotions.

So when we re-designed our popular BC Communities portal web site we strived to create an opportunity for those groups, organizations and volunteers to promote their events for FREE!

If you are seeking to experience socially conscious travel, or travel with a social conscience, then this is the site for you to "Plan to Participate!" in our BC Communities. You can choose to support local BC events focused on community and sustainability through volunteerism or travel philanthropy so you too can "think global, act local"!
