About Sproat Lake Community Association

 ABOUT

Sproat Lake Community Association,

Community Association

Sproat Lake Taylor Arm at the end of Dog Mountain.

Sproat Lake Community Association maintains Sproat Lake ‘s pristine beauty and wilderness areas.

This is a unique place to live, vacation and play.  Our lake community is a place where residents can truly have it all.  Especially important to residents is crystal clear and clean drinking water.

The residents of Sproat Lake enjoy hot summers and temperate winters.  They enjoy many recreational opportunities, namely, cycling; hiking; swimming; stand-up paddling; wake boarding; water skiing; diving and much more.

Our picturesque community is also a favourite for photographers, bird watchers, and leisure enthusiasts.

The Sproat Lake Community Association is governed by a fourteen member board.   These volunteers, from our community, take an active role in current issues.   They deal with concerns throughout Area  “D” Sproat Lake in the Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District.

The purpose of the society is as stated in the 1948 constitution, “to acquire, operate and maintain premises for community purposes; to encourage and foster the growth of community spirit in the Sproat Lake Area.  To provide social, recreational and athletic facilities for the enjoyment of it’s members, and to acquire and hold licenses, franchises, real and personal property, and to do all things necessary or incidental to the foregoing.”
A certificate of “Change of Name” was issued for the Sproat Lake Community Association on June 16, 1995.  In November 2005 a referendum was passed through our local government (Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District) to allow Sproat Lake Community Association membership fees to be collected along with other regional taxes.  This allows us to take an active stewardship role.  Mainly for water testing and keeping records of our water quality issues.
The main land use in the Sproat Lake area is forestry.  We have three provincial parks, and a few campgrounds including wild camping.  Sproat Lake has steelhead, rainbow trout, and now koi fish.  The community is popular for recreational boating/water sports, including houseboats.  We have three ecologically sensitive areas: the western tips of both Taylor Arm and Two Rivers Arm, and the eastern tip of Faber Arm (Wilson 2010, Pers. Comm.)
