Welcome to Sproat Lake
Sproat Lake is a place to live, vacation and play—a place where residents can truly have it all, including pristine clean water.
Residents enjoy hot summers and temperate winters with many opportunities for year-round recreation: from cycling, to hiking, swimming, stand-up paddling, wake boarding, water skiing, diving and much more.
Our picturesque community is also a favourite for photographers, bird watchers, and leisure enthusiasts.
The Sproat Lake Community Association is governed by a twelve member board from the Community who try to take an active role in current issues and concerns throughout Area “D” Sproat Lake in the Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District.
The purpose of our society is as stated in the 1948 constitution, “to acquire, operate and maintain premises for community purposes; to encourage and foster the growth of community spirit in the Sproat Lake Area. To provide social, recreational and athletic facilities for the enjoyment of it’s members, and to acquire and hold licenses, franchises, real and personal property, and to do all things necessary or incidental to the foregoing.”
A certificate of “Change of Name” was issued for the Sproat Lake Community Association on June 16, 1995 and in November 2005 a referendum was passed through our local government (Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District) to allow SLCA membership fees to be collected along with other regional taxes. This has allowed us to take an active stewardship role on issues such as water testing and keeping records of our water quality.
