Welcome to the House of Solidarity

Solidarity is a place


For the first time in our ten years, WildCoast has a dedicated volunteer space on southern Vancouver Island for all our ongoing projects and some new ones.

The House of Solidarity is strategically located 22 km from the Walbran Valley. And we have room to expand at a time when environmental defense is growing on the coast.

We're responding to community demand for space to organize volunteer trainings and outreach projects.

While other groups are coming apart, WildCoast and VIC FAN are pulling together.


Support the folks who are doing the work year-round. Because we give back.


Congratulations Protectors training graduates

Skills for every situation


WildCoast and Women for the Walbran hosted a spring training campout in May 2016 and we're pleased at the turnout and the enthusiasm of the crew. We spent long weekend sharing action strategies, non-violence skills, and indigenous solidarity discussions.

Then we teamed up with Sakej Ward, the Warrior Sisters, and the UBC Women's Centre for a two-day symposium at the University of British Columbia on May 28 and 29.

More workshops are coming this summer and fall. Join our email list or contact us to help set up the next training on Vancouver Island or elsewhere in BC. Find out about bringing presenters to your community.
