ISSofBC will be holding a Community Open House for local residents and other interested parties on our new refugee facility. The Open House will take place on Tuesday, Feb 21 from 5:00 – 8:00 at the First Christian Reformed Church (in the Church Hall) located at 2670 Victoria Dr – right next door to our proposed building site. We will be sharing some of our initial building design work as well as seeking input and feedback from local residents.
