The Voluntary Resource Council was founded to strengthen communication and cooperation amongst the voluntary sector on P.E.I, and to provide services and information. The Council owns and operates the Voluntary Resource Centre. The Centre is a hub of activity where members can access information and affordable services. The VRC rents affordable offices and provides a free meeting room for members.
The premise is simple. You and your friends are locked in a room and
must escape! Throughout the room, you will find clues and solve puzzles
to find your way out. Will you be escaping from a haunted house? Or are
you investigating an inspector? Make sure you escape in time!
Escape rooms are a fun activity for a group of friends, family adventures,
or team building for colleagues. Live Action Escape Room games began
in Japan and have spread the world over, and the first escape in PEI is here in Charlottetown.

The Voluntary Resource Centre received funding from PEI 2014 Fund to commission an art piece
for the outside wall of the Centre. The art piece celebrates the themes of Active Community, Civic
Engagement, Human Rights, and Inclusion. The artist, Warren Christopher Reeson, is working
with teens who participate in Murphy's Community Centre programs to complete the project. The
unveiling is happening with a party, weather permitting.

The Enabling Accessibility Fund of Human Resources & Skills Development Canada provided us with a grant which covers two-thirds of the cost to make our building accessible to persons with physical disabilities. We have been widening door ways, building ramps, and redesigning the kitchen and bathroom. We need your help to fundraise the remaining one-third of the cost for renovations. There are a few ways you can do this:
Buy Tickets to See Anne & Gilbert
Campbell Webster has agreed to donate $10 to our fund with every Anne & Gilbert ticket purchased by June 22nd. Here is how you can help:
1) Visit www.AnneAndGilbert.com
to purchase tickets online.
2) Enter the promo code VRC
when purchasing tickets. This will reduce all tickets purchased by $5 and also trigger an additional $10 per ticket donation to the VRC.
Make a Financial Contribution
This project has been a dream of ours for years, so we would really appreciate your support.
The VRC currently has three offices for rent! We are a welcoming, co-working environment. Most offices are occupied by members: voluntary, community organizations & small businesses.
