The Campbell River and North Island Transition Society works, with a feminist perspective, to achieve a balance of power in society. We provide safe shelter and access to community based resources for women and children.
About Our Organization

We oversee and provide support to safe homes located in Gold River and on Cortes Island.

Open support groups are available at Rose Harbour.
Campbell River Women's Center is recently under our umbrella of services. They provide an average of 450 visits from women living on or below the poverty line. Many are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Most are in unsafe situations. We offer poverty relief, crisis counselling and all day breakfast program.
