About Rotary in BC

Rotary is an international service organization dedicated to improving the lives of others both locally and around the world. Chartered in 1913, the Rotary Club of Vancouver was the first Rotary club in the Province, starting growth that today sees more than 145 clubs and 6,000 Rotarians active in service in British Columbia. Millions of dollars are raised and contributed every year to major projects such as the Rotary Hearing Centre at St. Paul’s Hospital, Rotary World Help which ships containers of used medical and education equipment to needy countries, and the global eradication of Polio as well as numerous projects in local communities.
