    Visits to Federal Prisons in BC (Community Resource Expos)

    Fraser Valley locations

    All but one of BC's 8 federal prisons are in or near the Fraser Valley. HepCBC visits these prisons twice a year.

    HepCBC peer-volunteers are visiting all 8 federal prison facilities in BC during Nov. 4 - 8, 2019. This is HepCBC's fourth round of twice-yearly visits under the auspices of the Community Resource Expo program, organized by John Howard Society. HepCBC brings information and support not only for hepatitis B and C, but for HIV and misc. STIs as well, to the best of our ability. Positive Living BC is no longer funded for this program, so we are doing our best to fill the gap using materials from CATIE. Here is our schedule:
