Welcome to the official website of the British Columbia Nautical Residents Association.

The BCNR’s mission statement is to:

1.    Preserve and support the tradition of living aboard one’s vessel;
2.    Promote environmental awareness among liveaboards;
3.    Establish effective communications and resolve issues of concern to liveaboards;
4.    Serve as a voice for liveaboards regarding activities that affect BC waterways;

With a mandate to liaise with community and government groups regarding development and activities that affect BC waterways and the people who live upon them.

Membership is open to all BC liveaboards: fresh or salt water, tidal or non-tidal, sail, power, or floathome.
