Blueridge Community Association

About the project

Blueridge is a community in North Vancouver and is about to celebrate 25 years as a neighbourhood on the Northshore in 2018. The Blueridge Community Association (BCA) is planning several events this coming year and is excited to share this opportunity with a few special UBC students. The events scheduled for this coming year include the annual Blueridge Good Neighbourhood Day and the 25th Anniversary Dîner en Bleu. Students will be working closely with members of the association and spend the first day in the community with tour of Blueridge and Seymour heights and learn more about various community initiatives  like the sharing garden.
