S.U.C.C.E.S.S. was founded in 1973 and incorporated in 1974 as a non-profit charitable organization for the purpose of promoting the well-being of Canadians and immigrants.

S.U.C.C.E.S.S. began as a new immigrant settlement service organization which has developed into a multi-service, multicultural agency. There are over 20 service locations in Metro Vancouver of British Columbia and 3 overseas offices. Programs are delivered in culturally sensitive ways to meet the needs of the clients.

Through innovative programming, we assist new immigrants with settlement; provide counselling and support to families and individuals with personal issues; promote personal development of children and youth; facilitate social participation of parents and seniors in the community; help the unemployed in job and career development; facilitate entrepreneurs in business development; deliver education and employment related training; and promote social change through community development and advocacy.

Approximately 70% of the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. annual operating fund comes from the three levels of government. The remaining funding is raised through donations, membership dues, cost recovery programs, corporate sponsorships and contributions from the S.U.C.C.E.S.S Foundation. Annually, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation holds three major fundraising events: Bridge to S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Gala, Walk with the Dragon and Charity Golf Tournament.

In 1979, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. became a member of the United Way of the Lower Mainland. In 1994, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. received the Citation for Citizenship Award for its contribution to new immigrants’ settlement and integration. Since 2004, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. has been accredited by the Council on Accreditation for its best practices in Board governance, operations management and standards of service excellence.

S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation


Established in 2001, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation is a charitable foundation governed by a volunteer board composed of prominent business and professional leaders. The mission of S.U.C.C.S.S.S Foundation is to raise funds for S.U.C.C.E.S.S. and its affiliated organizations to support their mandate for the betterment of the community through provision of social, employment, training and health services. In order to create a more stable funding base, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation manages fundraising activities and long term financial planning of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. and the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Multi-Level Care Society.

Each year, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation holds three major fundraising events: Bridge to S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Gala, Walk with the Dragon and the Charity Golf Tournament. Funds raised through these events provide much needed subsidy for programs which are inadequately funded by governments.
