The Altar for the Day of the Dead is an ancient tradition in some Latin American countries. This year we will have representative facilities from Mexico. We open the doors from October 6 to November 2, which is the celebration of the Day of the Dead. We invite the community to bring photos of their loved ones to our altars as we remember and honuor them in the heart of Granville Island. It is worth mentioning that the tradition of the Day of the Dead is an Intangible Heritage of Humanity proclaimed by Unesco.



Latincouver Cultural and Business Society

At Latincouver we welcome everyone because we truly believe that in order to grow in all aspects of our lives, we need to create a safe environment where the sense of community is a must. We care about everyone because we all give the best of us in every single thing we do, for the best interest of ourselves and the people.

We recognize that migration might happen because of several reasons, and it has a huge impact on the way we deal with all of our interactions.

The Plaza is where things happen, and we are here to connect with our collective dreams of making a difference in the world, respecting the land and people that were there before us.OUR VISION

To be the premier organization in BC where Latins and locals come together in a plaza to do business, celebrate culture, engage with Latin affairs, and pursue sustainability.

We want to create physical and virtual spaces to allow for Latin American culture, business and social interaction within a Canadian context to build a strong community while we support the growth of one another in British Columbia.
