Hey everyone, some great news — physicians can write prescriptions for a year-long pass to Canada’s national parks! It’s called A Prescription for Nature, and the program is being introduced in BC. Check it out here! This program is one part of a plan to get people out into nature regularly to support health and wellbeing — another key part is reducing barriers to transportation.
How often do you get out into nature? Leave us a comment!

Hey everyone, for those of you who might have missed it…here’s a link to an article about the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot (RNIP) program that ran in the Nelson Star on May 7, 2021, featuring some very kind words about us from one of our valued employees. Thanks Mahitha!
This poem was written by the mother of a person receiving home share services. Thank you for sharing these inspirational words with us, and for allowing us to share your words with others!
