is a non-profit Society dedicated to promoting safe recreational SCUBA diving, environmental protection and acting as the unified voice of recreational divers in British Columbia.


Our Directors have varied backgrounds and are involved Volunteer Members of the BC Dive and Environmental Communities sharing a common goal.
We have enormous goals and we need you, recreational divers, to become involved by Joining UCBC for free. Whether your interest lies in Citizen Science, reef protection via Mooring Buoys or even promoting Diver Safety, we need your help.

The UCBC operates and pursues its mandate and projects mostly though donations, utilizing the time, skills and passion for the ocean held by our members!


We've been serving the Recreational Diving Community since 1991.


 Our mission is to provide a mechanism through which the interests and activities of associations and individuals in British Columbia with an interest in sport and recreational underwater activities, including any form of Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus (SCUBA) diving equipment or skin diving equipment, can be coordinated and represented to government, industry and the public.
