Welcome to SPARC BC
SPARC BC knows that communities are just and healthy when people have equitable access to places, knowledge, services, adequate incomes, and community decision-making processes. That is why SPARC BC is passionate about working with people on income security, accessibility, and community development; and on the connections between them.
As an independent, non-partisan, registered charity working with BC communities for 43 years, we are an excellent source of knowledge and expertise, and proudly operate the Parking Permit Program for People with Disabilities. If you are in search of community-based research, consulting services, or practical resources and workshops, then SPARC BC can help you.
From a systems level, to the grass roots, we are working for positive change!
