Associations & Societies / Overview

Many communities within the Regional District have community members who have come together as active volunteers to form Community Associations/Recreation Commissions that work for the common good of their neighbourhoods. Most of these groups are registered as Societies (non-profit organizations) with the BC Corporate Registry and as such, acquire all of the powers of an individual, as well as an independent existence, separate and distinct from its members.

The responsibilities of these community groups might include:

  • maintaining local community halls, ball parks, and arenas,
  • participating in the development of local community projects,
  • applying for various grants in support of local community projects, and
  • organizing a variety of social functions and activities.
