We’re here for everyone – at every stage, in any circumstance. Providing a continuum of support, Connective provides person-centered assistance and support to people across BC and the Yukon.

Welcome to Connective,


We’re proud to share that the John Howard Society Nanaimo Region has changed their name to Connective. Together we will share a name and brand as we work towards our shared vision of a safe, healthy, and inclusive community for all.  

Nanaimo’s alignment with Connective’s values and goals made the integration of our organizations the next logical step. We look forward to continuing our longstanding relationship and working together to develop innovative solutions for people facing complex barriers across our communities.

Throughout our long history, we’ve been privileged to provide a continuum of housing supports and community-based services across BC and the Yukon. Recognizing housing as a human right, we proudly operate 310 housing units and provide housing support across our programs and services.

The ongoing housing and opioid crises, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic, have all significantly impacted our communities. Access to safe, supportive, affordable housing is more important now than ever.

We’re pleased to share that through competitive processes led by BC housing, we have been selected to operate three new separate supportive housing developments across BC.

Leading with person-centered approaches and housing first principles, we are honoured to have the opportunity to provide 141 more people with access to safe, secure housing and wraparound supports across these developments.

Through the support of our service users, volunteers, staff, and partners, we’re able to expand our programs and continue to work towards our vision of safe, healthy, and inclusive communities for all.

Our staff lead the way in creating safe, healthy, and inclusive communities for all. We sat with some of them to ask why they do what they do, and why others should follow suit. We’re inspired by what they had to say – check out the video to see for yourself!

We’re so excited to expand our amazing team. We have a range of positions open across BC and the Yukon. Take a look at our careers page to learn more.
