Members of the Authority

The Members of the Authority are elected officials appointed by the regional boards in each regional district in BC. The number of MFA Members (currently 40) is based on the population of the regional districts. The Members of the Authority represent all 28 regional districts. The Members meet twice a year, once at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) held before March 31st each year, and again in the fall, in conjunction with the annual Union of BC Municipalities Convention. At these meetings, the Members review requests for financing and authorize the issue and sale of securities. At the AGM, the Members elect ten Trustees, including the Chair and Vice-Chair. Four Trustees must be from Metro Vancouver, one from the Capital Regional District, and the other five from the remaining regional districts.

Appointment notifications are accepted via email with an official Member and Alternate Appointment Form and official documentation on regional district letterhead.
