UNA Responsibilities

The UNA is responsible for local regulation of such things as parking and noise; for managing community and recreational programs and facilities; and for planning future community amenities. The UNA is also responsible for promoting sustainability, maintaining community green spaces, holding elections, liaising with UBC over access to UBC facilities, and liaising with members of other organizations, such as the Vancouver School Board, and Metro Vancouver on issues that affect UNA residents.

UNA Constitution and By-laws

In November 2016, the British Columbia Societies Act came into effect replacing the old Society Act under which the University Neighbourhoods Association (UNA) was incorporated in 2002. The UNA applied to transition from the Society Act to the Societies Act in December 2016. The transition By-laws on the website are the current bylaws in effect.

The UNA Board of Directors has appointed a By-law and Governance Review Committee comprised of residents, stakeholders, legal counsel, and UNA staff to review the By-laws and make recommendations.

Neighbours’ Agreement

The Neighbours’ Agreement 2015 is the agreement that deals with the way in which the UNA manages municipal services, and financial matters. This Agreement clarifies the UNA’s relationship with UBC and provides a framework for the governance of the UNA community.
