Stay Tuned for 2022 Of the Vine!

After two years of being unable to host fundraising events due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, this year our Association is pleased to annouce the date of our 15th Annual Of the Vine fundraising event.

Of the Vine is our largest fundraiser, which has generated hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years. These funds help support individuals with developmental disabilities and complex needs in our community.

This year's event will take place October 15, 2022, at the Lido Theatre. More details will be posted at a later date. 


FSJACL Looking for Youth with Disabilities for A Self-Esteem Group


The Fort St. John Association for Community Living is looking for youth with a disability who may be interested in participating in a Self-Esteem group. The group, which will be run in partnership between trained FSJACL staff and local youth Clinical Counsellors Laura Honey and Julia Hintermeiser, aims to help participants build their self-esteem and address mental health concerns.

The group is open to youth ages 16-24, living in the Fort St. John area. Youth must self-identify as having some form of disability, which may include:

  • A physical disability.
  • A developmental disability.
  • A learning disability.
  • ADD/ADHD or ASD.
  • A mental health disability.

The group will launch in April 2022. Sessions will be two hours, once a week, for twelve weeks. A second group will run later in the year.

Interested youth and families are urged to contact the FSJACL at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Final participants will be based on the results of the applications.

More information will be provided at a later date.

The Fort St. John Association for Community Living thanks United Way Northern BC  for funding this program through the Coastal Gaslink Legacy Fund.

Big Thank You to Surepoint Group!

FSJACL Jan2021 01357

From left: FSJACL’s Amber Vieweg, Manager of Finance, and Joe Lang, Executive Director, accepted a donation from the local Surepoint Group employees Wade Banks, Operations Manager, and Kevin Shillito, VP of Operations, towards the end of January. The $2000 donation will go towards developing the Association’s budding Art Program.

The Program, at the moment still in its initial stages, currently circulates boxes with art projects to individuals in the FSJACL’s service. The boxes have been a welcome activity for people, especially since so many activities have been restricted due to the global pandemic.

Future plans for the program include an Association art studio for those in service, as well as a number of art shows in the community promoting work made by individuals living with developmental disabilities. Surepoint’s donation will go a long way towards developing this program.

Surepoint has been in Fort St. John since 2010 supporting the energy industry in the areas of electrical/instrumentation, mechanical/commissioning, and telecommunications. But most importantly, Surepoint prides themselves on being a value-based company that gives back to their community, and their donation this month gives back indeed.
