“PICS was an awesome place for me to volunteer.”


“I was given the opportunity to get involved in a variety of tasks and I am fortunate for these wonderful experiences. From one-on-one work with clients to assisting with reports, I was able to gain valuable knowledge around the agency. These experiences have helped me develop professionally and will benefit me in my future career in the social service field. There are not enough words for me to express my gratitude to the employees at PICS Vancouver; they welcomed me into the agency with no hesitation.” – A. Atwal (PICS Vancouver Settlement Office)

PICS Diversity Village

Designed to meet the Social, Cultural and Dietary needs of members of the multicultural community, PICS Diversity Village (PICS seniors Long Term Care Home) will be located in Surrey. PICS’ proposed PICS Diversity Village will be a 140 bed facility fully equipped to care for the elderly who need personalized attention in a setting which is familiar to them.
