History of ERA

Founded in 2007, the Esquimalt Residents Association (ERA) is a not-for-profit community group that exists to enhance and further the quality of life for the residents and business owners living and/or working within the Township of Esquimalt.

The purpose of Esquimalt Residents Association (ERA) is to:

  • Actively promote the wonderful aspects of living and working in Esquimalt and all of its neighbourhoods;
  • Provide a forum for concerned citizens to come together to discuss issues and create ways to become proactively involved in matters that are important to Esquimalt;
  • Act as an information vehicle between the community at large and Municipal Council.

The ERA is registered, not-for-profit society. It is a community group committed to informing, engaging, connecting and advocating for the people of Esquimalt in maintaining a strong, vibrant, active, and positive community. ERA exists to enhance and further the quality of life for the residents and business owners living and/or owning a business within the Township of Esquimalt. ERA strives to remain non-partisan and has been created to increase community involvement in issues that directly impact residents of Esquimalt.

The ERA is run by a board of volunteers who meet regularly and work to help connect residents with Esquimalt-based volunteer opportunities and events, encourage voting and civic involvement, and foster community building. Examples of recent projects that have been completed: Gorge Swim Fest (esp. at Gorge Park), “All Candidates Forum” in advance of the Municipal elections. The biggest project underway now is hosting and participating in “Resilient Neighbourhoods” Workshops.
