QBRA Opens Up Membership
At the recent Annual General Meeting, the Qualicum Beach Residents' Association changed its membership criteria to include people living outside the town but who consider themselves to be part of the Qualicum Beach community.
Our board meetings are open to any member. We prefer that you let us know ahead of time if you are coming so we can have enough seats, coffee, etc. If you have a topic you wish us to discuss, let us know so we can put it on the agenda. You can contact Doug MacKay-Dunn at (250) 607-1393
As well as renewing existing memberships , QBRA is reaching out to welcome new Qualicum Beach residents to our organization. Having access to our website and receiving our updates about upcoming issues , activities and Qualicum life is a wonderful way for new residents to learn about their new environment!
If you have new neighbours please direct them to our web site for membership information, or let us know and we will invite them to become new members of Qualicum Beach Residents' Association.

Everyone has the right to use public facilities without difficulty. These are all facilities open to the public such as schools, stores, restaurants etc. and includes the streets. At present there are some areas of the town where someone who has to use a walker, scooter, or wheelchair to get around has a good deal of trouble.

Tree Replacement Policy
Qualicum Beach has a wonderful urban forest in parks, on public land and on private land. We must protect our urban forest for all the benefits of trees. The Council needs to look at a tree protection and replacement policy to ensure we always have our urban forest.
