We are uninvited settlers occupying the stolen, unceded, ancestral territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and S’ólh Téméxw (Stó:lō) peoples. 

Our relationship with these lands dictates our commitment to understanding the ongoing impacts of colonization and decolonizing our practices in and out of the counselling room. 

Because counselling is not community, and we need community.

As part of our mission to support the collective healing of BIPOC communities, Prospect hosts events throughout the year to build opportunities for community engagement. All events are by donation and no one is turned away for lack of funds. Please see below for details and check back for updates!
