OUR STORY

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
