TVRA Mission Statement

To advocate regulation, licensing, professionalism and awareness of Vacation Rentals as a form of tourist accommodation within the District of Tofino.


The genesis of TVRA began when a number of individuals involved in the vacation rental business in Tofino determined that a professional association would be beneficial to the community and to guests coming from literally around the globe. TVRA was incorporated in July, 2005 and its membership includes vacation rental owners, managers and businesses serving the vacation rental industry.

The TVRA designation is an assurance to guests that the vacation rental they are residing in abides by the TVRA Standards of Practice. The Standards of Practice were created to ensure a harmonious balance between Tofino residents, guests of vacation rentals and the environment.

TVRA enjoys a community inspired philosophy and follows the adage "Give and you shall receive". Each year a portion of TVRA membership fees will go towards a local community cause, charity, association or fundraising event to be selected by the board of directors.

TVRA looks forward to welcoming you to Tofino!
