Engaging the Future is the way of the RCS V.I. in 2018.
The Royal Commonwealth Society Vancouver Island (RCS V.I.) actively promotes a future to believe in by placing an emphasis upon greater awareness and respect of Commonwealth Principles.
Through presentations and education programs, especially among young people, RCS V.I. engages citizens locally for the betterment of life in the world.
Two core programs the Society supports include both the annual Student Commonwealth Conference held at a local high school and the National Student Commonwealth Forum in Ottawa.
A special Luncheon on Commonwealth Day (the second Monday in March) is hosted regularly by our Patron, the Lieutenant Governor, Her Honour, Judith Guichon, and is held at Government House. A Commonwealth message is sent from Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, Head of the Commonwealth, and is read on the occasion of the Luncheon.
Focusing upon the future builds the extraordinary out of the regular and the visionary out of the drab.
