L’Arche Comox Valley is a community of people with and without developmental disabilities, sharing our lives fully and helping each other to discover our hidden gifts. We are located in Courtenay, British Columbia, Canada.
Several of our core members and assistants live in Jubilee House, our supported residence. Our offices and studios are located in the I Belong Centre, where people come to participate in social and creative arts activities. The I Belong Centre is also home to the Vanier Suites, a co-housing community of several core members living semi-independently. In addition, L’Arche Comox Valley offers a supported independent living program for people living on their own.
L’Arche Comox Valley is a Registered Canadian Charity # 89995-7351-RR0001; BC Registered Society # S0030771

In collaboration with a number of Comox Valley agencies and with a grant from L’Arche Canada, we’ve put together a local Resource Guide for Adults With All Abilities. This provides users with services related to housing, transportation, employment, recreation, and much more. Print copies are available from the L’Arche office (a small fee is requested to cover costs), or you can access it online here: Comox Valley Resource Guide
