Over the years we’ve expanded to offer our innovative, person-centered services to communities in Vancouver, North and South Fraser, Prince George, Whitehorse, Kamloops, and most recently, Nanaimo.
Expanding our Connective Community
2022 was an exciting year for us, as we welcomed both the Kamloops and Nanaimo regions to the Connective name. Resembling our own transition in the fall of 2021, the teams in Kamloops and Nanaimo had come to find that their name and identity no longer reflected who and what they had become.
As proven leaders in innovative service delivery, both had adopted increasingly diverse ways to meet the evolving needs of their communities. At the core of their decision to become Connective was a desire for a name that more accurately represented this diversity, and the many ways they’d evolved and expanded in recent years.
Both Kamloops and Nanaimo found the Connective name a perfect fit for everything they are today, and everything they hope to be moving forward.
Acknowledging The Land We Work On
From our humble beginnings in the lower mainland, it has been an honour to see our Connective community continue to grow across BC and into the Yukon.
Today, we are proud to support people and communities on the ancestral, traditional, and unceded Indigenous territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓ əm (Musqueam), sḵwx wú7mesh (Squamish), sel íl witulh (Tsleil-Waututh), Kway-quit-lum (Kwikwetlem), Kwantlen, Q’e’yc’ey (Katzie), Matsqui, Sema:th (Sumas), ˌsɛmiˈɑːmuː (Semiahmoo), Qayqayt, Stó:lō, sc̓əwaθn məsteyəxʷ (Tsawwassen), and other Coast Salish Peoples, on traditional Dakelh territory, home of the Lheidli T’enneh Nation, of the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc within Secwépemc’ulucw, the traditional territory of the Secwépemc people, as well as the traditional lands of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation, Ta’an Kwäch’än Council, and other Yukon First Nations.
We are honoured to work as visitors on Indigenous land, and do not take lightly the privilege and responsibility of providing culturally appropriate services.
Our evolving story is made possible by generous contributions from supporters across BC and the Yukon. Give today, and help us write Connective’s next chapter.
