Strata Owners Helping Strata Owners

Supporting Strata Owners for Over 50 Years

The Vancouver Island Strata Owners Association (VISOA) is an independent, non-profit organization supported solely by membership fees. Formed in 1973, it is the longest-running organization of its kind in Canada. VISOA provides education, support, and advocacy for BC strata owners and strata corporations. Membership is open to any resident of BC, strata corporations (such as condominiums, town homes, bare land and commercial stratas), and businesses that provide goods and services to stratas. As part of its mandate, VISOA meets with government and industry associations, and sits on advisory panels to advocate for BC strata owners and strata corporations.
