The BC Generations Project website has been named as one of the top 50 Canadian-designed websites across the country.

Despite the soggy weather, our first visit to Abbotsford on November 23-26 has been a great success.
Fraser Valley residents can join the BC Generations Project when we visit Abbotsford on November 23-26, 2009.
Thanks for your support, BC! We booked 375 new appointments over three days after our media blitz last Wednesday – we’re still working through the 1,200 emails we received, and the phones continue to ring off the hook. 40,000 here we come!
If you’ve left a message or sent us an email already, we appreciate your patience. We will get back to you as soon as we can to book your appointment at the BC Generations Project assessment clinic.
