Our Society supports an ongoing working relationship and partnership between Provincial and Local Government agencies, home owner/tenants and the land owners/landlords of British Columbia's Manufactured Home Communities. We believe in and work towards keeping 'housing on rented land' as an affordable housing option.
We are a non-profit Society, staffed by volunteers. We work together with District Associations and members around the province.
Owners of manufactured homes situated on rented pads in manufactured home communities are home owners, renters and taxpayers. They face a unique situation with problems common to all three roles.
Our membership is FREE however DONATIONS are welcome! If you can help with a donation send cheques to our ADDRESS:

|President||Susan Belford||Sooke||A retired mediator, Susan has extensive experience in meeting facilitation, organizational development, and consensus building. A manufactured home owner in Sooke since 2019, she is concerned about fairness, stable, affordable housing and the threats to homeowners from climate change.|
|Treasurer||Chris Mather||Nanaimo||I am a retired CGA with over 50 years experience in fiduciary accounting and business management. My interest is to help improve the Manufactured Home Owners status, protections and interests in BC.|
|Secretary||Serge Lamarche||Golden||Hosting, creating, updating websites and programming since 2003. Familiar with various aspects of the RTB and dispute resolution. Comment: In 2019, hoping for better than an appartment, bought a manufactured home (MH) in a perfect location, but needing urgent repairs. Strangely, the park owner attempted to evict a MH in repair. I had to learn about my rights as a MH owner and the RTB processes for dispute resolution and eviction. RTB services and regulations clearly need to improve and I hope to contribute with BCMHO.ca, my skills and new knowledge.|
