Connective is a community-based social services nonprofit operating in BC and the Yukon to create safe, healthy, and inclusive communities for all

Over the past 90 years, we’ve woven a strong social safety net that addresses the needs of all who walk through our doors. At Connective, we see a path forward for everyone, with opportunities to learn, grow, and develop—on their own terms and at their own pace.


We enable this through a continuum of innovative and dynamic housing, life-skills, outreach, employment, and community-based services, with the goal of assisting individuals to achieve greater independence. In us, people can find what they need to move forward and navigate challenging social systems.


Every day, we see the resilience of people rewriting their own narrative and working against a system that is deeply flawed. Connective is committed to facilitating transformative social change in communities across BC and the Yukon, and to reframing how society thinks about those facing systemic barriers.
