Rest.Q Animal Sanctuary Society

Rest.Q Animal Sanctuary is a registered charity that provides permanent housing to over 140 formerly abused, abandoned, and neglected animals.
Volunteers provide hours of direct care to animals in need including farm and domestic breeds. Rest.Q also has a spay/neuter program for feral cats and low income family pets.
We are networked with various regional animal rescue and service organizations, and act in a core role to promote quality animal care across Galiano Island, Mayne Island and the surrounding Gulf Islands in British Columbia, Canada.

Galiano Community Loan Fund

The Fund was created by Galiano Islanders who have come together to pool their money to support others in the community who:
• want to start or expand a business on the island
• need access to affordable housing on the island
• want to develop marketable skills to use on Galiano
• have a worthwhile project that will benefit the community
The Galiano Community Loan Fund is a registered non-profit society in BC.

Bruce Dolsen Fine Art

Bruce Dolsen is a fine artist from Vancouver and Galiano Island, British Columbia, Canada. Bruce works primarily with watercolours, woodcuts and linoprints. His detailed and beautiful depictions of the hidden corners of the west coast of British Columbia are favourites of the locals and constitute the majority of his current work. Brilliant images from the Galapagos island provide a fascinating comparison and evoke a sense of connectiveness between island communities.
