Glenwood is located in the Shaughnessy neighbourhood of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. 


Glenwood  offers programs for male high school and university students as well as young professionals that help them become competent, generous, and responsible individuals committed to the common good of society. Personal excellence, good work and study habits, and professional ambition are encouraged in the context of a spirit of service, dedication to the family, openness to those in need, and love of personal freedom and responsibility. The message of Saint Josemaría Escrivá inspires those who make Glenwood a reality. He founded Opus Dei, an institution of the Catholic Church to which the activities of spiritual formation at Glenwood are entrusted.
