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 53 municipalities and regional districts that stretches from the North Coast Regional District down to the tip of Vancouver Island and includes Powell River, the Sunshine Coast, the Central Coast and the North 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.
