Vancouver Island Monthly Meeting

Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)


Vancouver Island Monthly Meeting (VIMM) is an umbrella organisation formed by a number of different Quaker groups on Vancouver Island. It is made up of the long established Victoria Friends Meeting (formerly Victoria MM), a number of smaller worshipping groups, and isolated Friends spread out along the length of Vancouver Island. This includes Mid-Island Allowed Meeting (MIAM) in the Nanaimo/Parksville/Qualicum area, Duncan Worship Group in the Cowichan Valley. VIMM is a member of the Western Half Yearly Meeting of Canadian Friends (WHYM), and the Canadian Yearly Meeting - Religious Society of Friends (CYM). We also enjoy a Friendly relationship with Saanich Peninsula Monthly Meeting.
