Irish Benevolent Society of B.C.

The Irish Benevolent Society of B.C. is a non-profit organization based in Vancouver, British Columbia whose main purpose is to provide emergency assistance to  families and individuals in the Irish community.

 Officially incorporated and registered in 1994 the Society administers a benevolent fund on behalf of the Irish community to support those in need.

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, the Irish Benevolent Society of B.C. launched the Emergency Food Program in early 2020 to assist those who may be struggling to provide themselves with basic food essentials.

The initiative has been generously funded through the Consulate General of Ireland in Vancouver, the Irish Benevolent Society of B.C., Irish Families in Vancouver and individual community members.

We welcome both applications and donations. All the information you provide is confidential and will only be shared as required to administer this program.
