Welcome to the home of the Mount Tolmie Community Association (MTCA). We help facilitate, promote, support or undertake activities that will enhance the quality of life for those living and working in the Mount Tolmie area and to foster community engagement.  We foster and maintain a working relationship with Saanich Council and staff, business and service organizations, developers, special interest groups and other community associations for the betterment of our community. We review proposals to ascertain compliance with the OCP (Official Community Plan) and our Local Area Plan while seeking fair and appropriate community amenities. Like us on Facebook

Safer community: In an effort to reinforce that our community is made up of a wonderful and diverse group of people and businesses, the MTCA promotes two programs:  Block Watch and the “Mount Tolmie Good Neighbour Program 2017” program.

The MTCA is proud to support your community with two amenities:  A bench located at Richmond/Poplar (near the bus stop) and a Bike Repair Station located at the north end of Shebourne Village Square.

Volunteer opportunities include: communications, special projects, lead contact for developments and more.  If you are able to give 3-4 hours per month, have the skills and knowledge in board governance and communications that would be a valued asset.
