Description & Services
Service Details O_CHI is a multi-year, BC-wide community-based participatory research project that is investigating what systemic change would be for the T2NBY Community. O_CHI is a mixed methodology research project that establishes ongoing community resources to accomplish its objectives while maintaining a commitment to equitable access by the Indigenous community. 
 
O_CHI views systemic change through a strengths-based lens that sees a world where the T2NBY community is a respected, vital and important member of society. The start of that change is to see ourselves in that community as vital, important and worthy of respect. 
 
We are BC’s largest trans, Two-Spirit, nonbinary organization. We are a volunteer-based, not-for-profit cooperative.
Cost Membership - Memberships fee is on a sliding scale from $1 and up ; Events are free. To purchase a membership go to www.xqq.ca/product/membership.
