NexusBC Community Resource Centre is a registered, charitable organization that began in 1988 by providing employment-related services to individuals in the North Okanagan. Since that time, we have grown, evolved and expanded our services to deliver our mandate of connecting people to resources in order to promote a healthy and sustainable community.
We are always interested in new partnerships for community initiatives so if you would like to discuss your project, please contact us
NexusBC Community Resource Centre is a purpose-driven organization. This purpose drives our leaders and inspires our employees. It is our bold affirmation of why we do what we do.
NexusBC Community Resource Centre is governed by a community-based, volunteer Board of Directors.
A big thank you goes to this amazing Board of Directors:
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has. "
– Margaret Mead
We are always looking for new board members who understand our community and can harness their skills to help support our community resource centre. If you are interested in being involved with shaping our organization, we invite you to contact our Executive Director, Kelly Johnson
Your participation as a member of NexusBC gives us a chance to transform even more lives right here in our community. Why? Because some funders require us to have a strong membership in order to be successful at receiving grants. There is no cost to become a member and you would only be asked to attend one meeting a year.
NexusBC currently has 17 staff members all of whom are passionate about what we do, driven to succeed and are connected to our community. We are always growing and recruiting new staff by adding employees who believe in our purpose and bring new capacity to our team.

I love working at NexusBC because of the people; a fantastic group of creative, caring and passionate individuals who are making our community a better place to live by supporting those in need. Thanks to all of you for giving me the best job in the world.
I feel respected and valued for what I bring to the team. The flexibility to attend to family matters if necessary and the encouragement to come up with my own ideas and to provide input to the organization are very important to me.
NexusBC is a supportive and flexible employer. They invested in my future and allowed me to learn while on the job.
We have a great team (staff & volunteers) who truly care about the clients we serve and often, without hesitation, go above and beyond to provide the support needed.
Helping people is what draws me to this profession. Thankfully, I have found a wonderful employer with a fleet of amazing programs where I get to do exactly this, and I get to do it alongside a diverse and supportive work family. This is a direct result of the amazing workplace NexusBC has created and what it will continue to be as we grow and evolve.
NexusBC is such a rewarding place to work; being a part of a team that really cares about our community makes me excited to work for such an amazing organization. I love our mandate: to promote a healthy and sustainable community.
I love my work NexusBC family! Here I am able to apply my skills and experience in full by helping professionals realize their full potential and find dream jobs.
I’ve seen so many changes to our organization’s programs, funding and clientele, but one thing that remains constant is the commitment and dedication of the staff to provide their best to those we are privileged and blessed to serve, including clients, suppliers and colleagues. It really is the BEST place to work!
It’s so rewarding to come in to the NexusBC office each day to help seniors live their best life, and the staff and volunteers are all amazing; an inspirational team of individuals to work along-side.

These funds directly support the implementation and delivery of our programs and services, in support of our community.
