Stretching along the coast from Sargeant Bay on its southern perimeter, the area includes Porpoise Bay from Tuwanek to the Skookumchuk, Salmon and Sechelt Inlets, Welcome Woods, Leaning Tree, Secret Cove, Smuggler Cove, and Wood Bay which marks the northern perimeter of the area. Electoral Area B also includes a number of islands such as North and South Thormanby, Merry Island with the lighthouse, Trail Islands and others.
According to the 2021 census, Halfmoon Bay has a population of 2969 (up 8.9% from 2016). The community includes the Halfmoon Bay Elementary School, as well as many provincial and regional parks. Shop at the Welcome Woods Market at the south end of Redrooffs Road and the historic Halfmoon Bay General Store at the north end by the Halfmoon Bay pier. We also have boat launches at Coopers Green Park, Secret Cove and Buccaneer marinas, and a volunteer Halfmoon Bay Fire Department.
To serve as a volunteer group of residents that actively engages on significant issues related to Halfmoon Bay land development and its impact on the community and environment, and advocates for land use in alignment with the Official Community Plan.
We will achieve this by acting as a community focal point and liaising with experts, governments and community groups on issues of interest, to advocate for effective practices, policies and laws.
The Community Development Forum (CDF) was formed by a group of residents in 2022 in response to community concerns about development and land use in Halfmoon Bay. It’s purpose is to uphold the vision and intent of the Official Community Plan.
The CDF focuses on issues impacting on, or of interest to, neighborhoods and the wider Halfmoon Bay community, and does not address highly localized issues. The CDF’s ability to work on community issues is dependent on the capacity of volunteers.
