It was eighteen years ago Forums first began and took place at Furry Creek, home of  B.C’s most scenic golf course.  According to former Lions Bay Mayor Brenda Broughton, the first charter chair, The Squamish First Nations Chiefs, Bill Williams and Gibby Jacobs, said that it was the first time that the Squamish First Nations had been invited to participate at a first table in their history.  Long running West Vancouver Councillor Soprovich and Bowen Island Councillor Morse participated in the original meetings and have witnessed the evolution of the Howe Sound Community Forum over the years.

The purpose is to provide a forum for local governments, Regional Districts and First Nations discussion to maintain and enhance the economic, environmental, cultural and social well being of the Howe Sound for the benefit of present and future generations.  The program for the spring forum is under development.
