We hope you’ve managed to eat all your turkey, and we anticipate that the exercise bikes on the 6th floor of A building will be starting to see more action than usual this month.

Here’s a list of some fun things that are happening around the city this month.

December Events in Vancouver 2017

After what was one of the rainiest Novembers on record, it looks like we’ll be given a bit of a break to enjoy some decent weather.

Here are some fun things to do around the city:

Or maybe go check out some Christmas Lights? or wander around the Vancouver Christmas Market? Christmas at Canada Place is right next door.

And don’t forget to join us December 16 for the Co-op Christmas Social!

Community Kitchen

A few months back, courtesy of a grant we got from Neighbourhood Small Grants, we started a monthly community kitchen.

The idea was to get together once a month and create a healthy meal that we could all then take home to our families.


We have had two meetings so far. At the first, we had four families, and we made chili, cornbread and cookies for dessert. At the second, we made about 300 perogies, and 6 families participated.


Our next meeting will focus on Christmas Cookies. We’ll be making lots and lots and LOTS of Christmas cookies, and you can take them home both raw and baked. It will take place on December 2 between 2 and 4 pm. If you want to attend, please sign up here, so we know how much ingredients to buy.

Everyone welcome, no cost.
