Workshops happening within the CSPC and our community!
The Community Social Planning Council works hard to engage the community in workshops that range across our different program areas.
Towards a Healthier Drinking Culture
In response to the Victoria Foundations Vital Conversation on Drinking in the spring of 2018, the CSPC hosted 3 community dialogue events on moderate drinking. These events were workshops with multi-sectoral stakeholders to explore alcohol consumption within the community.
Point-in-Time (PiT) Volunteer Training Sessions
The Council coordinated its third one-day Point-in-Time Count of people experiencing homelessness in the region on March 12, 2020. The council had 175 volunteers to assist with the count and provided training workshops about the volunteer role, what to expect, general information about homelessness & the PiT count, safety information and how to preform the survey.

The Economics of Happiness Workshops
Three Events with Mark Anielski were held on November 12, 2009 in Colwood, British Columbia. These events came into being when the CSPC came together with folks from Colwood Community Place with a common interest: The messages within Mark Anielski's book "The Economics of Happiness".
