Metro Vancouver Alliance (MVA) is part of the 75 year old Industrial Areas Foundations (IAF) which is non-partisan and brings organizations together for the common good. There are over 50 organizations that are members of MVA. If you would like to represent your parish, you are welcome to sign up. Scholarships are available for those from parishes that are not MVA members. Our diocese is a Sponsoring Organization along with the Roman Catholic Archdiocese.

MVA  held the successful Provincial Assembly April 4, 2017, and has agreements from the NDP and Greens in areas of: Affordable Housing , Transit,  Economic Justice and Health. MVA made a commitment to work with whomever was elected and will be doing so.
