Nightly 12 Step meeting in the community except for Monday night which is an AA In-house meeting. Two of the weekly 12 Step meetings occur at the Vancouver Friendship Center which are Aboriginal Specific meetings. One is an NA meeting Tuesday nights and the other is an AA meeting called the Sharing Circle Group that meets on Wednesday night. These meetings also coinciding with two weekly events at the Friendship Center which are Powwow Night and West Coast Family night respectively.
