Find A Meeting

AREA 79 COVID-19 UPDATE

With the current health and safety regulations around public gatherings please be mindful that the majority of Area 79 meetings are not happening in person so please use this link: https://www.bcyukonaa.org/meetings/vmeetings.php to connect to an online meeting.

There are more than 700 AA groups in BC/Yukon Area 79. To find the meeting best suited to you, you can search by map, community or district. Whichever method you use, you will be taken to one of 47 District pages where meetings are listed for the community of your choice, as well as meetings in some neighbouring communities.

Meetings are listed here at the group's own request. A listing does not constitute or imply approval or endorsement of any meeting's approach to, or practice of, the traditional AA program.

There are many different types of meetings available in Alcoholics Anonymous. For ease of reference, the following codes are usually used for meetings:

Closed meetings are for AA members only, of for those who have a drinking problem and "have a desire to stop drinking".
Open meetings are available to anyone interested in Alcoholics Anonymous' program of recovery from alcoholism. Non-alcoholics may attend open meetings as observers.
* Accessibility information is provided by local members and may not conform to code standards.

There are meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous all over the world. To find meetings outside of Area 79, visit the A.A. World Services Website.

SINGLENESS OF PURPOSE AND PROBLEMS OTHER THAN ALCOHOL

Some professionals refer to alcoholism and drug addiction as "substance abuse" or "chemical dependency". Non-Alcoholics are, therefore, sometimes introduced to AA and encouraged to attend AA meetings. Anyone may attend open AA meetings, but only those with a drinking problem may attend closed AA meetings.
