The BPAHA was established to be a non-partisan, volunteer organization that works to represent the interests of residents of the British Properties and Area. We work to enhance the environment and quality-of-life for your community. We also represent residents when working closely with the West Vancouver Municipal Council, School Board, WV Fire and Police Department. We invite all residents to join your BPAH Association.

Learn About Our Furry Neighbours
West Vancouver, and especially The British Properties, has one of the lowest crime rates in the country. However, we never want citizens to let their guard down – don’t make it easy for thieves. Theft from Auto is always a concern as people continue to leave valuables in their parked vehicles while they are hiking, walking their dogs or enjoying community and sporting events.
If you are new to living in this area or you’re simply concerned about human/bear interaction, we hope you’ll take a little time to learn about bears. We live surrounded by lovely parks, trails and streams that form natural wildlife corridors which extend into residential areas. Black bears often follow these corridors and may wander into our neighbourhoods in search of easy food sources such as garbage and fruit trees.
Hiking in the Properties
In the British Properties we're blessed with the proximity of wonderful forest, creeks and mountains. It's not difficult to get to the wilderness when you live here. The extended Brothers Creek Loop will take you for a short lesson about North Shore logging history and to the true rain-forest.
West Van's Garbage
and Recycling Program
Since the District of West Vancouver's Green Can Program launched in 2012, approximately two-thirds of residents are now using Green Cans to divert food scraps. Gargabe volumes have decreased by more than 30 per cent and out garbage diversion has incrased from 58.2 to 68.6 per cent. As a result of these changes, we have nearly reached our regional target of 70 per cent garbage diversion and there has been no fee increase.
