About Us
We at the Vancouver Women’s Health Collective are a non-profit organization helping all who self-identify as women, non-binary, and gender non-conforming foster health, wellness, and equity through feminist approaches to advocacy, shared knowledge, and low-barrier programs and services.

We at the VWHC live, work, and play on the Unceded Territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Swx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlil̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

Territorial acknowledgments are just one small part of dismantling colonial worldviews. Please take a moment to think of other ways you can enact decolonization.
