As a Member, your participation is completely voluntary, and there is no obligation for you to participate in every activity we conduct. We plan a minimum of one engagement every 3 months, noting that some activities will be targeted and not all community members will be invited to participate.

You agree to be bound by the laws of British Columbia and Canada as applicable, and any action relating to these terms and conditions or use of the Community shall be brought only in the courts in British Columbia.

If any provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from the remaining provisions and shall not affect their validity and enforceability. Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you of these Terms does not constitute a waiver of our rights with respect to subsequent or similar breaches.

Your continued use of the Community after such changes is deemed to be your acceptance of such changes so please check the Terms regularly. If any changes are made to these Terms, we will revise the "Last Updated" date that is indicated on the Terms.
