For nearly fifty years, the Social Planning and Research Council of British Columbia (SPARC BC) has been working with communities to build a just and healthy society for all. In partnership with our 17,000 members, we build community capacity to achieve positive local change, and use evidence-based approaches to develop social policy solutions that promote economic security, social inclusion, and accessibility.

The history of community development in BC is strong, and the Fresh Outlook Foundation’s Building SustainABLE Communities (BSC) conference continues this tradition of working together for our collective well-being. The conference provides an important opportunity for leaders to learn, build skills, and share knowledge about what it takes to create complete communities based on the principles of equity, equality, adaptably, and security. During these pivotal times of change, BSC is exactly what British Columbia needs.



CAPE is an organization of physicians, other health professionals, scientists and other citizens that explores the interface between human health and the environment. It seeks to promote environmentally appropriate behaviour by pointing out the health consequences of environmental degradation and loss of ecosystem services. Since its inception in 1994, it has become the voice for doctors with respect to environmental issues and long-term sustainability.

CAPE is pleased to be involved in the wonderful Building Sustainable Communities conference. First, the conference is stimulating, entertaining, well-organized, and imaginatively structured. Second, it focusses directly on one of the most important issues of our day, the long-term ability of our species to thrive on Planet Earth. And third, it brings together renowned scientific experts, political leaders, and non-profit advocacy groups, as well as ordinary citizens — and especially youth — to share insights and current, authoritative information about how our communities are managing now, and how they will manage in the future. There is no better event in this province to attend in order to learn how to adapt our communities to the realities of the 21st century!



Building SustainABLE Communities (BSC) is the best conference in central BC on innovative community development issues. Drawing local government, developers, community leaders, politicians, First Nations, and business together, BSC offers a highly effective venue for sharing and comparing current strategies for building sustainable and prosperous communities in the social and market context of BC.

As a development company, we are pleased to participate and sponsor the conference as we know from experience that all great solutions come from listening to others, sharing our point of view, and then building better ideas together. This conference allows us to network with many people and organizations that we wouldn’t otherwise engage, to hear their insights and experiences, and to thereby become better at what we do.  There is no other event like this in BC!
