“Having a Foundry centre here means that I’ll see a lot more independence possible for peers and friends my age. Foundry in itself is wonderful for allowing youth to take the lead on their own well-being, and having a centre in the Comox Valley will make doing so that much more accessible. It’s a massive step forward.”

- Cam Hautcœur-Boyer, youth ambassador, Foundry Comox Valley

"Comox Valley Foundry will be an integral part of our community in supporting our youth. Any youth who is seeking help can go, no questions asked, and no referral necessarily. This is exactly what our province and the Comox Valley needs."

- Comox Valley Parent

“Youth in the Comox Valley and surrounding areas deserve appropriate mental-health and substance-use supports. Now they can walk into Foundry Comox Valley, where they will be met with friendly and helpful staff, who will get them supports fast.”

- Ronna-Rae Leonard, MLA for Comox Valley
