Our History

Chartered June 10, 2014, the Rotaract Club of the Fraser Valley, or RCFV, was formed after a group of passionate individuals wanted to give back to their communities.

RCFV is sponsored by 5 Rotary Clubs which are: Rotary Club of Abbotsford Sumas, Rotary Club of Meadow Ridge, Rotary Club of Haney, Rotary Club of Mission AM, and the Rotary Club of Mission Midday.

Our Story

After many of our chartering members attended the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards in 2014, they were inspired to become a positive change throughout the Fraser Valley.

Since chartering, we have focused primarily on local initiatives. Being situated in three different communities has allowed us to give back to so many. Whether it is hands on volunteering, promotion and awareness, or fundraising, we are dedicated and enthusiastic individuals.

We currently has a membership base of about 15 - a mix of young professionals and post-secondary students.
