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

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.
