The Hornby Island Residents’ & Ratepayers’ Association (HIRRA) is a non-profit society registered in the province of British Columbia since 1973.

Over the last four decades, HIRRA has grown into an essential island organization responsible for managing numerous island services and, through a contract with the Comox Valley Regional District, overseeing a large amount of local tax funding. We also provide an open forum for community discussions and reports by other local organizations.

HIRRA depends on the dedicated input of over 60 volunteers who serve on the HIRRA Executive and Management Committees. The Management Committee members oversee the practical details and budgeting for each of the HIRRA services.

HIRRA membership is open to all long-term residents and property owners of the island. Attend a monthly HIRRA meeting or notify the Administrator if you wish to become a member. Off-island guests are also welcome to attend HIRRA meetings.

HIRRA’s Constitution, Bylaws and Policies can be found here.

Minutes of HIRRA Committee meetings are available for viewing by HIRRA members by contacting the Administrator.
