If you are a Hornby Island registered landowner who hosts visitors in short term accommodation on Hornby Island, please consider becoming a member of HISTRA.
HISTRA was formed in response to Official Community Plan recommendation as part of the legalization of Short Term Vacation Rentals in 2010. We formed in 2019, and now our members represent at least 2/3 of Hornby’s Short Term Rental community.
The Mission of the Association is to develop an innovative, collaborative Association that supports short term accommodation in a way that benefits the community as a whole and acknowledges the fragility of Hornby Island.
HISTRA, collectively with our community, has created and is expanding our voluntary frameworks and protocols that reflect and protect Hornby and its uniqueness.
We are all working to support and enhance the positive contribution of Short Term Rentals in our community. The Vision of the Association is to support a thriving, sustainable, environmentally conscious Hornby Island, now and for future generations.
There is a $25 annual fee for membership.
Please fill out the membership form below and send, a scan or picture of, the form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your consideration in lending support to this group working on your behalf.
Under the British Columbia Societies Act:
The Act spells out the records a society must keep, including a register of members, minutes of members' and directors' meetings, accounting records, and financial statements. By default under the Act, members are entitled to inspect all records of the society (as are directors). For some records, member access can be restricted. For example, a society's bylaws can restrict members' access to accounting records.
The public is entitled to receive a copy of a society's financial statements and auditor's report if requested. A society can choose to grant access to the public to more of its records.
The only record that is excluded from public access is the society's register of members. Unless you choose to become a Board Member your participation is not a matter of public record.
