Close is located on the unceded territories of the Lkwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples in Victoria, British Columbia. We acknowledge the ongoing impact of colonialism on all peoples’ daily interactions and wellness, including the inextricable connection between current unjust systems and conditions of risk for Indigenous youth. At we continually strive to learn from and incorporate this knowledge into our work in creating safer spaces for all visitors.


We encourage and welcome all youth to chat in, no matter what your background, religion, race, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, lifestyle or culture. We are always working towards being a LGBTQ+ affirming and welcoming space by constantly learning and unlearning harmful normalized ideas of gender and sexuality.
If you have any feedback for us on how we can improve access to our service, we welcome you to contact us through our contact form
