Vancouver Finlandia Club

In 1971, VFC formed as a non-profit, non-religious and non-political club to inte­grate and enlighten BC’s Finns, to improve its mem­bers’ well-being, to make Finland’s cul­ture known to Cana­di­ans and vice versa. VFC spon­sors children’s and adults’ folk danc­ing, ath­letic events and lan­guage lessons, grants schol­ar­ships, and holds numer­ous social events through­out the year.
