We are passionate about our communities. We believe that feminism is inherently intersectional and advocating for those values means showing up in many ways. While Bonjibon is dedicated to the message of sexual wellness, there are many organizations and companies doing other facets of feminist work to help support, strengthen and empower those in our communities.
The Bonjibon Initiative is a way for us to help financially contribute to and spotlight different organizations and charities and their efforts.
Every quarter we will donate a portion of our profits to a different charity or organization.

We were known as the Residential School Project, housed out of and as a part of the BC First Nations Summit. Our work was primarily to assist Survivors with the litigation process pertaining to Residential School abuses. In more recent years our work has expanded to include assisting the descendants of Survivors and implementing Community education measures (Indigenous & Non-Indigenous).

There is a zero tolerance policy for drugs and alcohol at the shelter.
