ABOUT US

 

The Sierra Leonean Community of British Columbia (SLCBC) is a volunteer-based non-profit, registered under the British Columbia Societies Act.

 

SLCBC’s mandate is to serve the Sierra Leonean community residing in British Columbia through key activities that engage members in community building including:

  • Cultural, Diversity and Heritage Events: We promote the important message of diversity, multiculturalism, and community building with our annual “Canada-Sierra Leone Cultural Heritage Day,” honoring remarkable people, places and events that have contributed to our unique heritage. 

  • Community Family Support: we assist our community families in working towards a stable and healthy foundation for the home environment. We support family members struggling with parenting by arranging alternative babysitting schedules, communication, conflict resolution and life skills.

  • Community Education & Training - we organize seminars; workshops; mentorships to help members improve communication skills, gaining expert knowledge, networking with others and renew motivation and confidence.

 

SLCBC values the different perspectives and backgrounds that we all bring. This diversity helps make Canada a unique and flourishing place to call home. It takes a special mix of people to make us who we are.
