Latincouver is a non-profit organization founded by Paola Murillo in 2009 as a space or “plaza” for Latin Americans in B.C. to connect and interact with Canadian people and businesses.
In its 11 years of existence, it has managed to become an example of the best Latin America has to offer to B.C.. Latincouver’s influence has been growing, creating local cultural events such as the Carnaval del Sol in Vancouver.
As a hub for Latin Americans to seek help, the organization has been put to the test with 2020’s COVID-19 pandemic.
Founder Paola Murillo said this has created a need to bring the community together.
