VANCOUVER ISLAND CRISIS LINE
The Vancouver Island Crisis Line is committed to bringing mental health wellness to all communities of Vancouver Island by providing accessible, 24 hour, 7 days a week, emotional telephone support during times of crisis, including connection to the Mental Health Crisis Professionals when required, and information about community resources. We value the principles of confidentiality, non-judgmental acceptance, and respect for diversity, personal empowerment and cooperation.
Online Emotional Support - Anouther service newly added to increase access to support services, there is now a link called, 'Chat Now' on our webpage, www.vicrisis.ca, that will allow someone to begin connecting. Available every night, 7 days a week, from 6pm to 10pm. Chat creates a safe online venue where people can reach out for help. This will be an outlet for populations traditionally hard to engage in face-to-face mental health care such as teens, those who are homebound, people with social anxieties and phobias, and people with hearing or speech impairments.

CLAYOQUOT BIOSPHERE TRUST
The Clayoquot Biosphere Trust (CBT) was established in 2000 to assist the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve communities achieve their visions by providing funding and logistical support for research, education and training initiatives that promote conservation and sustainable development. The CBT is a member of the Community Foundations of Canada in 2012. As the region’s community foundation, the CBT works with individuals and organizations to build a region where all residents can succeed, contribute and develop their talents to their fullest potential.
The CBT has an annual Call for Projects where communities, educational institutions and registered charities are invited to submit proposals for funding. The CBT funds a wide variety of projects in four categories: Culture and Events, Youth and Education, Community Development, and Research and Environment.
The CBT produces Vital Signs, a biennial “community check-up,” that measures the vitality of our communities, identifies significant trends and supports action on issues that are critical to our quality of life. You can find the most recent report at: clayoquotbiosphere.org/web/vital-signs/
