About Us

Waves - Green


We envision a future where every recreational space in our province operates safely, efficiently, and inclusively.


We empower recreation professionals to operate safe, efficient, and accessible recreation spaces.

Who We Are and What We Do

Since 1948, the RFABC has been a dedicated not-for-profit association, training over 800 recreation facility operators in British Columbia each year. Our long history speaks to our commitment and reliability in the industry.

RFABC is here to champion recreation facility operators across B.C. by offering education, support, and resources. We work together to make recreation spaces across the province operate more efficiently and safely, contributing to more active and healthy communities.

Every year, we keep expanding, offering courses, conferences, and workshops on arenas, pools, building services, parks and sports fields, and leadership. Our membership has grown to over 1,800 individuals from municipalities and recreation based organizations across the province. Together, we form a vibrant and dynamic community.
