VCON is presented by the West Coast Science Fiction Association — a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and understanding of science fiction and fantasy fan culture in the Vancouver metro region. VCON is organized by a WCSFA subcommittee and is not, nor will it ever be, owned by a big business or corporation. For now and for as long as efforts continue VCON will be a convention built "For the Fans, By the Fans".
