BCAOMA, located in Vancouver, has been the industry advocate for apartment owners and managers throughout BC for over 40 years. Along with championing industry interests, BCAOMA provides its members with general assistance, tenancy forms and supplies, media relations and educational resources.
Who joins the organization?
We have a roster of over 1,000 landlord members who collectively own and manage approximately 81,000 residential rental units throughout BC. Members that enjoy membership in our Association include owners and property managers with holdings ranging from one rental suite to those who own or manage thousands of suites.
Aside from regular members we also have associate members.
We have a volunteer board of 13 directors who collectively have 200 years of experience in the rental housing industry. The office consists of six energetic staff: the Chief Operating Officer, the Member Services Coordinator, three Member Services Representatives, and an Office Assistant.
General membership meetings are held twice a year. The annual general meeting is held in March and the semi-annual general meeting is held in October.
Over 40 years ago a small group of 14 apartment owners got together in a basement suite of one of the owners to discuss the issues affecting them as owners of rental property. It was at this meeting that the owners agreed they could only be successful at "promoting the interests and conserving the rights of apartment owners" if they acted jointly.
The society was registered in 1964 to meet that challenge. Our services now reach out to rental property owners and managers throughout BC.
