The 21st AGM of the Association was held on Saturday, May 18th, 2019 in Surrey, B.C. The AGM was attended by delegates from all over the Province. A broad range of agenda items were discussed. Thirteen directors were elected representing all the regions of the Province. Mohan Singh Kang was re-elected unanimously for his 21st term to head the Board of Directors. It is well understood that the taxi industry is moving in new directions and the future will involve Bill-55, as it will soon be put into regulation
The Association fully supports the current Bill-55 passed by the NDP Party government which was enacted. Though, it still has to be put into regulations. The Association has always officially stated that we do not have any issue of TNC's operating in the province provided they meet all safety standards. Also, there should be an even playing field as taxis and CNC's are providing the same type of transportation service carrying passengers for a cost. The TNC's must service the communities in the Province without any discrimination and simply not "Cherry Picking" their customers.
The BC Taxi Association is working hard to safeguard the economic viability of its members, the entire British Columbia taxi industry , and the livelihood of thousands of drivers and their families, while continuously improving safety and customer service.
