Latincouver


We are a non-profit organization that brings together both Latin Americans and Latin enthusiasts living in BC. This vast network can be compared to the public square or, as it is common said in Latin America, la plaza.

In the past, the plaza acted as the social and economic hub of a city and as the heart of the community, playing an important role in bringing people together.

Latincouver is the modern-day plaza. With us, professional connections are made, and entrepreneurs get the help they need for their businesses to grow and succeed.

Our Mission LC_Wheel_Icon

Latincouver creates a socio-economic space to promote relationships and cultural exchange among Latin Americans and the Canadian mosaic.


Our Vision LC_Wheel_Icon

We want to create physical and virtual spaces to allow for Latin American culture, business and social interaction within a Canadian context to build a strong community while we support each other to grow in British Columbia.

HOW WE DO IT
