The Board

The Cliff Bungalow-Mission Community Association (CBMCA) values the historic character, natural environment, socio-economic and cultural diversity, and the role of residents in our community.


As board members we value:

  • the opportunity for residents to be engaged in civic life to preserve what is best about Cliff Bungalow-Mission and contribute to creating a positive future for our neighbours and our neighbourhood;

  • inclusivity, working collaboratively as a team in a spirit of camaraderie, and valuing what each member has to offer;

  • working strategically and effectively to affect change.


Please contact us if you are interested in joining the board or volunteering for one of our committees.
