James Bay Community Project

James Bay Community Project is a non-profit community organization helping seniors, youth and families by providing outreach services, community support and volunteer services.

JBCP shares its building with several tenants providing services to the community: James Bay Urgent and Primary Care Centre, LifeLabs, HerWay Home, and other independent providers of health services.


The weather for Summer 2024 is predicted to be hotter, drier and longer than average. If an emergency is declared, portable drinking fountains as well as cooling and misting stations will be made publicly accessible throughout the city.

Help seniors in your community stay connected with digital literacy skills to maintain their resiliency.
When seniors stay connected with their family, loved ones and their healthcare providers, they increase their quality of life.
Your gift will help us ensure we can continue to provide our in-demand programs and services year-round for residents in James Bay and throughout Victoria.
