Activate BC: Small Business Support for Overdose Prevention

Activate BC created a centralized hub for business-specific resources related to the toxic drug crisis in BC. Our aim is that these resources will provide businesses with the tools they need to become active partners in our collective response to the toxic drug crisis. The resources include templates, posters and other easy-to-use materials along with access to relevant partners, support programs and information.

Appreciate our past and enhance our future.

As real estate experts and trusted partners to thousands of members of the community, we have heard firsthand people’s concerns when they try to imagine the future of the Tri Cities. Our not for profit work is our way to give back while also providing insight for our professional work on the issues important to our community.
