About VIFS

Welcome to The Vancouver Israeli Folkdance Society website! We were a non-profit organization, incorporated under the Society Act of British Columbia in 1985.

As of February, 2017, the Vancouver Israeli Folk Dance Society received charitable status and is now authorized by the CRA to issue tax receipts for any donations received.

As it is written in the VIFS’s constitution, we are mandated to educate the public in the Vancouver area, by providing structured learning activities such as instructional programs and workshops about Israeli folk dancing, and by providing opportunities for students to publicly perform their works, and develop their skills in conjunction with these learning activities and to undertake activities and ancillary and incidental to the above mentioned charitable purpose.
