The Cadboro Bay Residents Association is run completely by volunteers from your community. There are several opportunities for members to assist with the many projects underway with the Association. Here's some examples of current projects that could use your expertise.

Cadboro Bay Residents Association Committees

The CBRA has struck a number of Committees to facilitate and assist us in representing the interests of the community. The Committees meet as required. Residents with a particular passion or interest in the CBRA's work are encouraged to become members of these Committees or to propose a new committee if none currently exists to address your particular concern. We welcome all volunteers. It is a wonderful way to make new friends in the community and to contribute. It is also a lot of fun.

For more information or to volunteer for a committee, refer to the Contacts page as most committees are listed there or email info@cadborobay.bc.ca. If you do not have email, please telephone the CBRA Chair (see Contacts section).
