Latincouver Cultural and Business Society

About

Latincouver is The Latin American Plaza in BC, is a local reproduction of this traditional Latin American site. True to its inspiration, The Latincouver website (www.latincouver.ca) functions as a real and online Plaza Latina and has become the leading “destination” for Latino immigrants seeking information and support in making the transition to Canadian life, as well as acting as a bridge between not only members of the various Latin communities in the Lower Mainland and Canada, but between these communities and non Latinos seeking to enrich their lives through Latin culture. Local and Latino businesses looking to expand their markets are joining the party too. Members share information and resources through blogs, business listings, sporting and cultural event listings, dance and language classes, and even their very own Latin American “buy and sell”.

In addition to utilizing the website to achieve these goals, Latincouver also brings people together the old fashioned way, in a physical Plaza, face to face. Over the formation as a non-profit organization, Latincouver has built up a network of 60 volunteers at any given time, and through the efforts of volunteers and supporters organizes monthly business networking, workshops and cultural events designed to introduce the Latin communities and their culture and businesses to greater Vancouver.
