Who We Are

The Friends of the Rossland Range is a non-profit registered charitable organization which must be operated without financial gain for its members, and all earnings and donations must be used only for promoting the Society's purposes.  

On December 1, 2009, at the Society's AGM, the membership approved a Special Resolution to align the Society's stated purposes more accurately with the  intention to be inclusive of all those concerned with the diverse values and uses in the Rossland Range. To qualify for charitable tax status as of Jan 1, 2017, in the fall of 2016 we moved these statements from their original home in the Constitution to an independent statement of our goals and objectives, and they continue to guide how we conduct ourselves.

The goals and objectives of the Society are:

a) To increase public awareness of the importance of natural values, including recreational, scenic and environmental values, to the people and communities touched by the Rossland Range;

b) To increase public awareness of the cultural and historic values that make the Rossland Range and its communities unique;

c) To work with all stakeholders for responsible use of the Rossland Range, and particularly for use that is appropriate to its site, that respects conservation values and the needs and sensitivities of other users, and that provides appropriate integration or separation of uses;

d) To work with stakeholders and governments to preserve important natural, recreational, cultural, historic and economic values in the Rossland Range;

e) To act as a catalyst, and where feasible as a facilitator, for the creation of appropriate plans and other official instruments (e.g. bylaws, regulations, tenures) to give formal recognition of, and security for, natural, recreational, cultural, historic and economic values in the Rossland Range;

f) To enter into agreements, hold tenures, and undertake any other activities to further the Society's purposes as set out above.

 

The activities of the Friends of the Rossland Range Society are also guided by these governing documents:

Constitution (Revised, as of Nov, 2, 2016)

Bylaws ( Dated Jan 16, 2004)

Special Resolution RE Memberships and Special Resolution RE Directors (Both approved at the Nov 25, 2015 AGM, these will revise the Bylaws above)
