Associations & Societies / Overview

Many Regional District communities have residents who volunteer to form Community Associations or Recreation Commissions to work for the common good of their community. Most of these groups are registered as societies (not-for-profit organizations) with the BC Corporate Registry. As such, the group acquires 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 can include:

  • operating and maintaining local community halls and recreational properties with amenities like skating rinks, ball parks, equestrian properties, playgrounds and picnic areas

  • participating in the development of local community projects

  • applying for grants in support of local community projects

  • organizing a variety of social functions and activities

For more information on how to register as a society or the responsibilities of a society visit the Province of BC website
