Greater Vancouver Electoral Area A
Greater Vancouver Electoral Area A is a part of the Greater Vancouver Regional District in British Columbia. It includes several unincorporated areas in the GVRD: the University Endowment Lands and the University of British Columbia, west of the City of Vancouver; Bowyer, Passage, and Barnston Islands; the west side of Pitt Lake; the northern portion of Indian Arm; and a large area to the north of the North Shore that is mostly mountainous and sparsely populated except for certain subdivisions between Horseshoe Bay and the Village of Lions Bay.
The Electoral Area is represented by a Director on the board of the GVRD and its Communities Committee. This is an elected position, with a three year term, and the GVRD Board acts as the municipal council for these areas. The director for 2009 to 2011 is Maria Harris.
