Who we are
VIC FAN is a registered non-profit society based in Victoria, Coast Salish Territory, BC. We are all volunteers, and we don't have government grants, corporate sponsors, big offices or high-paid staff. All of our funding comes from the community and goes directly to the camp and the caravan. We regret that Revenue Canada does not allow advocacy groups to issue tax receipts.

Fight to win
FAN vs. Enbridge: We started an international divestment campaign to drop Enbridge stock, starting with Vancity Credit Union. FAN coordinates the annual Caravan to Unis'tot'en Camp to support indigenous people blocking the pipeline route in Northern BC.
FAN vs. Marine Trail Resort:Defeated a West Vancouver developer's plan for a 300-home subdivision along Juan de Fuca Marine Trail Park. This plan for a massive vacation-home development between China Beach and Sombrio Beach was an unacceptable violation of a much-loved wilderness trail. FAN mobilized thousands of residents to the island's largest public hearing, and delivered the legal report that knocked that plan out of the park.
FAN vs. Bear Mountain: Fought to preserve indigenous heritage sites at SPAET (Skirt Mountain) and exposed developer Len Barrie's unethical and illegal practices long before his downfall at the hands of creditors and Revenue Canada.
