NOTICE TO ELECTORS
OF THE DISTRICT OF UCLUELET
OF AN ALTERNATIVE APPROVAL PROCESS

Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the Community Charter, this is the FIRST of two notices to advise electors in the District of Ucluelet, of the intention to adopt Loan Authorization Bylaw No. 1304, 2022. The purpose of the bylaw is to borrow an amount not to exceed $13,000,000 (13 million dollars) to be repaid over a period not exceeding 30 years in order to finance the costs of the development of water treatment systems within the District of Ucluelet. A copy of Loan Authorization Bylaw No. 1304, 2022 and a summary of the proposal are available from the District of Ucluelet Municipal Office during regular business hours (Monday through Friday from 8:30am – 4:00pm excluding statutory holidays)

Further notice is hereby given that the District of Ucluelet may proceed with the adoption of Loan Authorization Bylaw No. 1304, 2022, borrow the money and undertake the development of water treatment systems within the District of Ucluelet unless, by 4:00PM on August 8, 2022, at least 10% of the electors in the District of Ucluelet sign an Elector Response Form, opposing the implementation of the proposal, indicating that Council must obtain the assent of the electors (referendum) before proceeding. The number of elector responses required to prevent the District of Ucluelet from proceeding unless a vote is held, is estimated to be 206. A report respecting the basis on which this determination was made is available upon request from the local government.

Elector responses are required to be submitted to the local government on forms that can be obtained during regular business hours (Monday through Friday from 8:30am – 4:00pm excluding statutory holidays) from the District of Ucluelet Municipal office, located at:

The form can also be downloaded from the District of Ucluelet’s Alternate Approval Process webpage at https://ucluelet.ca/community/district-of-ucluelet-council/alternate-approval-process The only Elector Response Forms that will be accepted by the local government are the ones provided by the District of Ucluelet, or an accurate copy of the form.

Only electors of the District of Ucluelet are eligible to sign the Elector Response Form. There are two types of electors – resident electors and non-resident property electors.

Resident Elector: When signing an Elector Response Form during an AAP, a resident elector must: be 18 years of age or older; be a Canadian citizen; have lived in British Columbia for at least six months; have lived in the jurisdiction (e.g. municipality or electoral area) for at least 30 days; live in the area defined for the AAP; and, not be disqualified under the Local Government Act, or any other enactment from voting in a local election, or be otherwise disqualified by law.

Non-Resident Property Elector: When signing an Elector Response Form during an AAP, a non-resident property elector must: be at least 18 years of age; be a Canadian citizen; have lived in British Columbia for at least six months; have owned property in the jurisdiction (e.g. municipality or electoral area) for at least 30 days; own property in the area defined for the AAP; and, not be disqualified under the Local Government Act, or any other enactment from voting in a local election, or be otherwise disqualified by law.

Note: Only one non-resident property elector may sign an Elector Response Form per property, regardless of how many people own the property; and, that owner must have the written consent of a majority of the other property owner(s) to sign the response form on their behalf. Property owned in whole or in part by a corporation does not qualify under the non-resident property elector provisions.

Resident electors signing the Elector Response Form must provide their name and address.

Non-resident property electors must provide their name and the address of the property in relation to which they are entitled to register as a non-resident property elector. The local government will not share the information on the form with anyone other than the Corporate Officer, or other person designated by the Corporate Officer.
