Ferry Advisory Committee Chairs (FACC)
The FACC is composed of chairs of each of the thirteen Ferry Advisory Committees, or a chair’s chosen delegate.
The group is a forum for discussion, consultation and action on issues that are common to the 22 non-major routes served by BC Ferries.
FACC’s goal is to promote reliable, affordable, viable, safe ferry service that supports the vitality of BC’s ferry-dependent communities, and allows them to contribute to the economic health of the province.
FACC members individually and collectively liaise between local committees (and the communities they serve), and other parties involved in operating, regulating and setting policy for ferry service, which include BC Ferries, the BC Ferry Commission and the provincial Ministry of Transportation. The FACC is also a vehicle for communication with the public at large.
The current focus of the FACC is on the extraordinary growth of fares on the non-major routes resulting from the new coastal ferry regime. The group is also involved in consulting with BC Ferries on operational issues that span the non-major routes
