The Village of Port Alice is updating the Official Community Plan (OCP). Get ready to create transformative progress for the Village!
Our Port Alice. Rugged. Wild. Independent. Connected. A spirit place. The end of a road, but the beginning of a bold world we can imagine from our shore. Port Alice is calling to us…. asking us to step into an ambitious future. To find harbour for new horizon lines. Tourism development, attraction of digital nomads, independent entrepreneurs, and Internet enterprise, growth of small business, outdoor recreation opportunities, and affordability are some potential themes to explore.
It’s your time to answer the call. With ideas. For an Official Community Plan update that will have a generational impact on everything we see around us.
Check out these opportunities to engage!

OCP Initial Community Engagement Boards
The Village’s current OCP is 12 years old and needs updating to align with community needs and future growth. The OCP is the highest-level statutory plan in the Village. It provides the framework for the community to consider future vision, goals, and aspirations, and includes policies to support long-term actions that will create the Village that we want to live, work, and play in!
OCP’s are powerful in their ability to:
- Articulate DEVELOPMENT VISION
- Create ENABLING POLICIES THAT TRANSLATE VISION IN GEOGRAPHIC TERMS
- Create a FRAMEWORK TO GUIDE COMMUNITY GROWTH AND RE-INVESTMENT
- Include CHANGES AS REQUIRED BY LEGISLATION
- Capitalize on DEVELOPMENT TRENDS SUITABLE FOR THE VILLAGE
Get a refresher on the current OCP to support consideration for the future of the Village by viewing the current OCP here.
