Parkinson Society British Columbia (PSBC) is a non-profit organization established in 1969 and is governed by a voluntary Board of Directors. It is supported by donations from individuals, members, corporations, foundations, and the dedicated efforts of volunteers. Our mission is to empower the Parkinson’s community in British Columbia by providing resources and services to enable self-management, self-reliance, and self-advocacy.
