Who are Gabi & Jules?
Gabi & Jules is named after our daughters Gabriela & Juliana. Our mission is to passionately create exceptional pies and baked goodness in a collaborative environment inclusive of individuals of all abilities.
This desire to create an inclusive environment is motivated by the fact that our eldest daughter Juliana has autism.
Gabi & Jules are our goodness and make us feel warm & fuzzy and it’s our hope that our pies, pastries & baked goods make you feel the same.

Lisa and Patrick Beecroft employ a crack team of specialists at their Port Moody bakery, each seemingly faster and more skilled than the last.
Aaron can perfectly fold dozens of pie boxes in less than two hours, and when they have enough, he is outta there. “We sell huge, heavy pies, so we need these heavy boxes built fast and properly, and Aaron flies through it,” said sales manager Sarah Breitenbach.

How we give back:
We are proud to support these great organizations in our community.
MFAN is a volunteer, national coalition of non-partisan parents, advocates, professionals and growing numbers of other fair-minded Canadians seeking Medicare coverage for effective, science-based autism treatment otherwise known as ABA (applied behaviour analysis).
Over 40 years of research and litigation have identified this treatment as medically necessary. It is the only core health need not included in health care, therefore costing Canadian families thousands of dollars a year each to access the only uniquely effective treatment for their children.
Autism Support Network Board Members are dedicated to improving and increasing access to quality ABA services in the home and in the community for all individuals who may benefit from it.
The Autism Support Network is an organization of families and professionals educating and supporting families about Applied Behavior Analysis and its’ application as a treatment for autism. The Autism Support Network seeks to strengthen our community across British Columbia by building local networks so that families can connect with other families in their own neighborhoods.
As per our mission to create an inclusive work environment we endeavour to provide employment opportunities to individuals on the Autism Spectrum.
