We acknowledge that we live and breathe on the unceeded traditional territory of the K'omoxs First Nation.
We recognize the inequalities, oppression, and racism that Indigenous peoples face
and prioritize Indigenous youth and Indigenous peoples of colour in grant applications.

OUR MISSION:

We are dedicated to supporting LGBTQIA2S+ youth athletes on Vancouver Island. VIQAA provides grants for mental and physical health along with material and sport associated needs. Our focus is advocating for accessibility and inclusion in sports regardless of how you identify as a human being.

Welcome to the official website for VIQAA

VIQAA stands for Vancouver Island Queer Athletic Association. We are Vancouver Islands' first nonprofit association dedicated to helping LGBTQIA2S+ athletes. VIQAA was founded by two best friends, and the moment to start a nonprofit seemed obvious when they put together a pride event in July 2021 and couldn’t find a local association helping LGBTQIA2S+ athletes to donate to.

 There is a lack of funding and a need to break barriers in sports. 

VIQAA was founded to help bridge that gap.

Thank you for joining our community!

We are so happy to have you.

VIQAA's ability to give out grants comes from community initiatives and donations. We appreciate every way a person can help us spread the word about this NEW association. Supporting this nonprofit can look like: following VIQAA on Instagram (@v.i.q.a.a), sharing our mission with friends, making a donation, & helping us with fundraisers.
We appreciate every one of you.
Thank you for making a difference.
