You Are Welcome Here!

We want to ensure that people of all backgrounds, races, religions, sexual orientations, and gender identities feel welcome in Port Alberni.

We've created a poster for local businesses to display so they can show their support for the unique individuals that make up our city. We want to cover Port Alberni with You Are Welcome Here posters to serve as a visual signal to our community that we respect you and value you!
