ABOUT THE FRENCH CREEK HARBOUR AUTHORITY
As a Federally incorporated not for-profit corporation, the harbour must generate all its own revenue to pay for everything from electricity to wages, repairs, improvements and much more.
Established in 1991 after the government transferred operations to local governing bodies, the government still owns the facility but it is managed by the Harbour Authority of French Creek, which is overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors currently consisting of 8 representatives from local user groups including representatives from the Commercial Home Port Fishing Sector, Parksville Qualicum Fish & Game Club, French Creek Boat Owners Association and the Lasqueti Transportation Committee. Board members are elected or appointed by their group or by the board.
The Board establishes rates and policies and works on long term & strategic planning, Board members have special experience and skills that benefit the harbour.
Individually the board members have no authority, but rather function as a group, and meet periodically to discuss important matters. Contact the board using the link below and your item will be placed on a meeting agenda at the earliest opportunity.
The hired staff handles day-to-day operations of the facility. Our facility is always growing and changing as the needs of our user groups change over time.
Capital projects, that allow the harbour to improve in ways beyond the limits of its own budget, are often funded by the Small Craft Harbours branch of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, whose primary mandate is to maintain core harbours that support the Commercial Fishing industry.
