Pure Leaf Tea

At Pure Leaf, we have one philosophy that applies to everything we do: The best things in life are real.

But real isn’t always easy.

That’s where our passion comes in. A passion for serving some of the best tea out there, whether that’s iced tea brewed and bottled without powders or concentrates or giving you the delicious and delicate leaves to brew at home.

In 1984 something happened that forever changed the local beer industry: Granville Island Brewing opened the doors to Canada’s first microbrewery. And in doing so, we opened hearts and minds to a whole new beer drinking experience.

Driven by a firm belief that the West was ready for a premium, natural, unpasteurized beer Granville Island Brewing introduced locals to our now famous Island Lager.

And it wasn’t long before we were adding more new and unique, West Coast inspired craft beers to our lineup. In celebration of our heritage, we name each new GIB beer after iconic Vancouver locations that embody the West Coast lifestyle.

Over the years, we’ve become more than just the local brewery. We focus much of our sustainability efforts towards ongoing community investment, including sponsorship and charitable support, involvement with local sports teams, community organizations and more. We’re just as proud of that as we are about what we put in our bottles.

It’s Good to Be Here!

Mainstream Broadcasting Corporation is a British Columbia media company owned and operated by local Vancouver resident and businessman, James Ho. Mainstream began its broadcasting service in 1973 as Overseas Chinese Voice (OCV). In 1993, OCV programming was incorporated into the multicultural AM radio station of CHMB AM1320, serving the needs of Vancouver’s multicultural community. In addition to meeting the demand of the Chinese-speaking community, CHMB is also providing service to the growing diverse Vancouver community in 12 other languages including Portuguese, Brazilian, Filipino, Greek, Japanese, Tamil, Ukrainian, Vietnamese, Danish, Icelandic, Norwegian and Swedish. Every effort is made at the station to ensure its programming reflects the diverse cultures and core values of Vancouver’s ethnic communities, fairly and accurately.

Glacier’s community media publications serve more than 2 million readers in more than 60 different communities across Western Canada in print and online.

Our publications are long-established, trusted, award-winning brands that are not only the primary sources of news for the communities we serve, but also community institutions which support thousands of non-profit organizations and community projects with millions of dollars in in-kind sponsorship. Our unmatched hyper-local content and distribution channels enable us to connect local and national advertisers with customers weekly and daily not only in our title publications in print and online, but also through a wide array of customizable features, specialty publications and programs, events and online initiatives.

Abreast In A Boat

Abreast In a boat

Abreast In A Boat is a group of people who have been treated for breast cancer from the Metro Vancouver area. We paddle to make a difference ~ to raise awareness about breast cancer and to encourage all people to live full and active lives. We are a registered charitable society and our goal is to send a message of hope to people who have had a breast cancer diagnosis, and to all those who support them.

In the dragon boat we paddle together, support each other, learn from one another, laugh together, enjoy competition, overcome our fears, encourage each other, make new friends, take pride in our accomplishments, and break the silence of cancer.

What began as a medical study in 1996 has grown to inspire the formation of about 150 survivor teams worldwide. We have six home crews in the Metro Vancouver area based in Vancouver, Delta, Richmond, Port Moody, and Fort Langley.
