COVID-19 has affected us all, in varied and unforeseen ways, and the work landscape has shifted as a result. More people are now working from home, attending meetings through video- and tele-conference, or recording meetings to be accessed at a later date.

The team at Raincoast Ventures is committed to continuing to provide the best service to our clients that they have come to expect. To this end, we have many services that can be offered to you in a virtual setting, listed below.


  • Minute and note-taking via tele-conference or video-conference
  • Preparing minutes from recorded meetings
  • Guidance and support to conduct video- and/or tele-conferences effectively
  • Virtual Mentoring and training (e.g. minute-taking, virtual meetings)
  • Virtual Corporate Secretariat support.

We are experts at finding solutions, so if you don’t see a service offered, please contact us to discuss at 604-318-9223 or info@raincoastventures.com.

We are all in this together, and the team at Raincoast Ventures looks forward to supporting you, both now and into the future.

About us

We’re a rare breed. We’re passionate about minute-taking, that critical task that is often performed by people who wish they were – and often should be – doing something else. Based in Metro Vancouver, Raincoast Ventures Ltd. has been providing expert minute-taking, conference report writing and coaching services to government, non-profit, association, business and aboriginal clients across Canada since 1996. Many of our client relationships date back more than a decade, and most of our new work comes from referrals. As we see it, our primary job is to make our clients look good on paper. We work with you one-on-one, tailoring our minute-taking services to meet your specific needs and audience. We quickly become a trusted member of your team, allowing you to focus on more important work.

When Rae Ratslef launched Raincoast Ventures, her vision was to become recognized as an inspired and passionate leader in the field of minute-taking. She has done this by building an exceptional team, by continually working to improve, by anticipating future client needs and by consistently exceeding expectations.
