VEVA was registered Feb 1, 1988 under the Societies Act of British Columbia as a non-profit organization that promotes the use of electric vehicles. While our membership is drawn largely from the Lower Mainland we have members from all over BC as well as other provinces and states.
In the new electric car age (circa 2010) most of our members are owners and drivers. Prior to that time many of our members built conversion electric vehicles including passenger cars and bicycles, and some still do. We meet monthly to discuss current events, electric vehicle regulations and policy, projects under development and to plan for various events which we attend each year promoting the benefits of going electric. Since 2020, our bi-weekly online Meetups have been very popular to bring enthusiasts together from across North America!
VEVA is a non-profit organization (BC Societies Act, Feb 1, 1988) that promotes the adoption and use of electric vehicles.

(a) To advocate for, promote and support the conversion to and use of electric vehicles as a vital step in achieving a healthy and sustainable environment.
