The Vancouver Island Fire Protection Association offers two types of memberships.

Voting and Non-voting.

All Members agree to abide by the VIFPA Code of Ethics.


Participating Voting

Participating members are companies that are directly involved in the design, sale, installation, verification and/or service of fire protection equipment and life safety systems. Each company is entitled to one vote at meetings and one proxy vote for another absent voting member. 

Associate Non-Voting

Associate members can be any other type of organization or individual that participates or is connected to the life safety field. Associate members may attend and contribute at meetings, but do not hold voting status. This type of membership may be appealing to those involved in the engineering, contracting, consulting, inspection, insurance, property management, education and other fields related to fire protection.

Membership applications must be approved by the Membership Committee appointed by the VIFPA board of directors.

We understand that new members may not currently perform all fire alarm procedures in complete compliance with the BC Fire Code. One of the purposes of this association is to assist companies to become compliant. It is our goal that by becoming a member of VIFPA, companies can learn to adopt the requirements of the BC Fire Code in all aspects including the installation, verification, inspection and documentation of fire alarm systems.

The desire to become compliant by joining VIFPA is the first step.
