The Association of Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities (AVICC) is the longest established area association under the umbrella of the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM). The area association was established in 1950. It now has a membership of 51 municipalities and regional districts that stretch from the Central Coast Regional District down to the tip of Vancouver Island and include Powell River and the Sunshine Coast. The Association deals with issues and concerns that affect large urban areas to small rural communities.
The Annual General Meeting & Convention held in April each year provides members with the opportunity to bring forward issues and concerns from their individual communities through resolutions and debates. The Executive is constantly working to make this event informative while giving members an opportunity to share their issues.
AVICC members are encouraged to use this website to keep members quickly updated on issues. Executive urge members to email the Executive Coordinator or contact by telephone at 250-356-5122 of events or issues that you would like to see posted on the website.
