We are looking for individuals who are passionate about the future of holistic health in Canada. They volunteer their time and expertise to provide strategic oversight for Compassion Roots Wellness Centre Society and to contribute to its success. Joining the Board of Directors allows you to support the growth of our Society, and connect with other involved members.



MISSION Our mission is to provide high-quality natural healthcare services to those in need in a safe and friendly environment. We educate our community on the benefits of natural health care promoting a holistic approach to healing and living.

VISION We envision a world in which natural therapies are readily accessible and socially supported in a manner that is consistent with the highest standard of care. We will each take responsibility for our individual, collective, and environmental health while honoring the diversity in each other and the natural world.

VALUES The work we do at the Compassion Roots Wellness Centre Society and the services we provide are a reflection of these core values:

Compassion - Compassion has called us to offer affordable, accessible natural health care that is patient-focused not profit-focused.

Diversity - The diversity of humans, plants, and animals is a vital component of health. We honour the diversity in each other and the natural world.

Diversity is embodied by our staff, board, and members. The diversity in plants is the key to their efficacy. We do not engage in, support, or quote animal research. We do not believe in the patenting of life forms.

Empowerment - The individual is the primary authority when it comes to making personal healthcare decisions, including the decision to use natural holistic healthcare. Empowerment encourages the individual to take control of their healing.

Natural Health Care - Natural therapies are an effective alternative or complement to allopathic medicine and must be available to everyone who would choose to make them part of a healthy lifestyle--not just to those who can afford them. Natural plants provide effective relief for persons living with critical and chronic illnesses. Natural therapies are also an effective harm-reduction tool.

Alternative Solutions - We utilize consensus decision-making as an alternative to hierarchical structures because consensus empowers the individual and the community. We serve as a working model for these alternative solutions. We are poised to launch into the next phase of our extraordinary work, and we’d love to have your ideas!
