Welcome to VISOA (Vancouver Island Strata Owners Association)

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 society of its kind in Canada providing information, education and support. VISOA membership is open to any resident of B.C., strata corporations (such as condominiums, town homes, bare land and commercial stratas) and businesses that provide goods and services to stratas.

Please note that the VISOA office is closed until further notice due to public health concerns regarding COVID-19.

We will continue to respond to email and calls to both the VISOA office and the Strata Support Team.  Phone calls will be sent directly to voicemail, and both lines will be monitored and answered as soon as we are able.

Thank you for your understanding. We wish you the best of health.
