The Association was formed in 2007 as a non-profit Society under the BC Societies Act, providing both transparency in its operation and a democratically elected body.  Our members have control of the Association and its function.  The purpose of the EVTA of BC is to facilitate training and promote educational processes. EVTA of BC offers a platform to network with other technicians on matters regarding emergency vehicle/apparatus maintenance, repair, guidelines and standards.
