Times Colonist Vital People – December 19, 2021

The latest issue of Vital People, from the Times Colonist and the Victoria Foundation, explores how the Filipino community in Victoria begins its yuletide celebrations in September.

Also, learn how The Victoria Youth Clinic Society has taken the lead in providing health services for young people, offering access to primary-care, mental-health and substance-abuse support.

Plus, Victoria Foundation CEO Sandra Richardson reviews the foundation’s remarkable year. From funding 12 organizations focused on advancing gender equality and disbursing $3.13 million through our Community Recovery Program to our 85th anniversary and the publication of our 16th annual Vital Signs report, 2021 was a year of growth, adaptation, challenges, and opportunities.
