Plug in BC - New Incentives for EV Charging Equipment


If you’ve been thinking about buying an electric car, new charge-up incentives may give you the boost you need.

On March 7, 2018 the Fraser Basin Council announced rebates in its Plug in BC program to help offset the purchase and installation of electric vehicle charging equipment in single-family homes, duplexes and multi-unit residential buildings and – for the first time – in workplaces. The incentives are funded by the Province of BC.

Fraser River Tours for Community Volunteers


On September 10 the Fraser Basin Council hosted free Fraser River Paddlewheeler tours along the New Westminster waterfront for community volunteers. We were there to celebrate the natural, cultural and recreational values of the Fraser, one of our Canadian Heritage Rivers, and also to recognize the valuable contributions of our guests in service to the communities of the Lower Fraser. Over 220 people came aboard, including volunteers for the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, Metro Vancouver (Parks & Recreation), Fraserside Community Services Society, Stream of Dreams Murals Society, City of New Westminster Parks & Recreation (Century House), S.U.C.C.E.S.S., Emotive and Fraser River Discovery Centre.
