Family Dynamix Association


“The Community is our family”

Who we are

Formerly called the Family Resource Centre, Family Dynamix has a vision to see families, individuals and communities in the Columbia Valley happy and healthy, confidently able to meet every one of life’s challenges. They strive to foster mental, social, physical and financial wellness to make the vision happen for all.

The registered non-profit society is based in Invermere with an office in Canal Flats and currently working on having one in Radium Hot Springs. Together, they serve the area from Spillimacheen south to Canal Flats, providing tools that enable us all to be the best that we can be.

Counseling is supportive and educational and is not intended as therapy or treatment. Counselors are trained listeners and, without prejudice or judgment, they assist clients to organize their thoughts and feelings. They provide guidance and encouragement as individuals develop additional communication and conflict-resolution skills. Counselors provide information and link their clients with resources, services and opportunities.

Partnerships and Funding

Financial support for the ongoing programs of Family Dynamix comes from various sources, both governmental and otherwise:

  • BC Housing
  • Canadian Mental Health Association (East Kootenays)
  • Interior Health Authority
  • Ministry of Children and Family Development
  • Ministry of Justice
  • Ministry of Public Safety
  • Solicitor General
  • Columbia Basin Trust

A unique source of funding for Family Dynamix is through Ambiente Home Design Elements, a home furnishings store in the location of the former Interior World in Invermere’s Frater Landing. Newly remodeled and updated, the store not only fills a need with shoppers, but also generates revenue to add services as they are needed.

Memberships are vitally important to the Centre’s viability and a great way for community members to play a part in making Dynamix a success. You can purchase a membership for as little as $40 per year and also enjoy access to the lending library and have voting privileges at the AGM.
