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 between liveaboards and non- liveaboards;
  4. Resolve issues of concern to live- aboards;
  5. Serve as a voice for liveaboards regarding activities that affect BC waterways.

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