About the BC Compassion Club Society:
The BC Compassion Club Society, a registered not-for-profit society, is a cannabis dispensary and holistic health centre. Our 20 year old organization is a unique model. All of the profits from cannabis sales go to support low cost or free holistic health treatments such as: acupuncture, herbal medicine, holistic nutrition, counseling, integrative energy healing, craniosacral therapy and bodywork. As such, we are one of the few points of access for affordable holistic health treatments in the Vancouver area. Our waitlists range from 1-2 years because of the scarcity of affordable treatment in this region.
While clients of the clinic are from diverse backgrounds, 95% are low-income, and live with a chronic health challenge. Many clients have mobility issues, and the clinic has worked hard to ensure that the whole space is fully wheel chair accessible.
The BC Compassion Club spends approximately $300, 000 per year to operate the Wellness Centre. Each year, we are able to offer more than 3000 subsidized appointments.
