Float Homes

There are a number of float home groupings found in and around the Alberni Inlet and Barkley Sound. Presently, there are 56 float homes within the boundary of the Port Authority. There has been a moratorium on new float homes since the early 1980’s.

In 2006, the Province of British Columbia undertook a licensing process for float homes outside the Port Authority boundary. To ensure the riparian rights of prospective upland owners are honoured, the Port Authority has no plans to proceed with a licensing process until ownership and zoning of upland fronting float homes is finalized in Treaty.
