Vela Microboards

velaVela is a BC resource that supports the creation of Microboards™

A microboard™ is a small group of committed family and friends (a minimum of 5 people) who join together with the individual to create a non-profit society, registered with the BC government.

Together, they will help the individual:

  • plan his/her life;
  • brainstorm ideas;
  • advocate for what they need;
  • monitor services and ensure they are safe;
  • connect to his/her wider community; and
  • do fun things together.

If they choose, a microboard™ can also access funding and deliver the services that the individual needs.
