Benefiting Charity

Who is the BC Lions Society for Children with Disabilities?

In 1947 a group of Lions felt there was a need for transportation for children with disabilities. With their own vehicles they began the first transportation program for these children. This idea developed into what we now know as the BC Lions Society for Children with Disabilities.

The Society has been a registered charitable organization since 1952. You may also know us as the Easter Seal People. Under both names, our mandate is to support children with disabilities throughout British Columbia. The Society provides specialized programs and services to help children to develop to their full potential.

Our services include:

  • Easter Seal Camps – Shawnigan, Squamish and Winfield
  • Easter Seal Houses – Vancouver, Victoria and Prince George
  • Easter Seal Buses
  • Patient Care Grants
  • Vancouver Hospital Helipad
  • Lions Laser Skin Care Centre at Vancouver Hospital
