Huge thanks to all sponsors, team captains, walkers, and donors!

Without all of you we could not have done it.

In solidarity

The Comox Valley Transition Society is deeply saddened to learn of the finding of remains of 215 Indigenous children at a former residential school in Kamloops.

As an anti-oppressive organization working to end violence, poverty and homelessness we recognize that the residential school system was part of a larger system of racism and cultural genocide that continues to this day and continues to impact the lives of First Nations, Inuit and Metis persons and communities.

CVTS is committed to listening to, and learning from, Indigenous staff, clients and community partners and to taking action towards the implementation of recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission that pertain to our work.
