Lillooet Friendship Centre Society

The Friendship Centre

The Friendship Centre movement continues to develop and grow within communities, provinces, and across Canada. There are 117 Friendship Centres across Canada and 24 of them are in British Columbia.

Friendship Centres across this province have the opportunity to strengthen capacity, services, and continue to develop and deliver “best practice” because of the support and guidance from sister Centres and the British Columbia Association of British Columbia. Friendship Centres are the largest non-profit social service organization in this province and across Canada.

In Lillooet, the Friendship Centre Society has grown to be a leading employer in the community, the largest social service organization, and generates approximately 1.8 million dollars in revenue to the community.
