This Society is one of the few groups in the Lower Mainland that are actively using Raspberry Pi and teaching it to groups. Their website is http://vancouver.hackspace.ca/wp/
So I went to one of their Open Houses to see what exciting things they do!

In my pursuits in learning as much as I can about Raspberry Pi, I emailed VHS which stands for Vancouver Hackers Society. Three members (thanks Simon, Steve and Thomas) kindly emailed me about wonderful resources that will help in developing our ins-PI-re project. I wanted to share the list with you:
For well documented Raspberry PI tutorials
For tutorials on getting started with the Raspberry PI
For a printable magazine filled with tutorials
For information about making Technology fun for students:
