Accessible Okanagan advertises themselves as "Wheelchair friendly discussions, activities, sports and events in Okanagan Valley." Their calendar of events has options for people with mobility issues to get out and be part of the community. Additionally, their Facebook page is a great resource to see what other people in the Okanagan are doing to stay active and is a great place to connect with other members of the community.

Save-on-Foods, a popular grocery chain in western Canada, has added a feature where you can shop online for your groceries. By signing up and making an account, you can browse thousands of products from home, and add them to your virtual shopping cart. Purchases can then be picked up from the store, or delivered to your door. This program is ideal for people with mobility concerns, or else no means of traveling to the grocery store. More information on the program can be found at the Save-on-Foods website.
