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
