Our People

Our people waving.jpg

The Haven is an integral part of the Gabriola community and economy. Our program participants come from all over the world to enjoy all that Gabriola Island has to offer, and contribute to the local culture and economy in many ways. We are one of the largest employers on the island, and also use local businesses, suppliers and tradespeople as often as we can.

The Wong and McKeen Phoenix Auditorium is a fine venue for music, theatre and dance. Further enhancing Gabriola's culture and its reputation as The Isle of The Arts, we partner with the Gabriola Arts Council to create an Artist-in-Residence program. We host many community gatherings and meetings organized by local groups. The Haven is a long-standing member of the Gabriola Island Chamber of Commerce. We are donors to the Gabriola Medical Clinic and support a number of local charities.

We are proud to be part of this vibrant community and are grateful to all our friends on the island for your many contributions to our work and to the lives of the people who come to The Haven.
