Annual Membership Fees
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.
