CVTS EVENTS

Community events are an important part of our work. Whether we are hosting the event or it is organized through a 3rd party, events help to raise much-needed funds for CVTS and increase awareness about the work we are doing in the community.

Each year, 5 key events take place in the Comox Valley that support women, children and families who access CVTS services. Learn more about these events and the people who organize them.

Peace Begins At Home

Peace Begins At Home

Peace begins at home…it’s an idea that many of us hold dear. But for many women, children, elders and families in our communitt, this is not the case. For too many, home is not a place of safety, security and sanctuary; instead, it is a place where family members or intimate partners use violence and coercion to maintain power and control. For two weeks in April, CVTS works to educate the community about the continued issue of domestic violence, encouraging people to wear purple ribbons and do their part to help end family violence.

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.
