The Beaver Bank Community Awareness Association (BBCAA) was formed in 1995 with three aims:
Enhance security through information and awareness
Recognition of individuals in the community, particularly our youth
Betterment of the community through the sharing of views and ideas
The BBCAA is a non-profit association, under the Nova Scotia Societies Act. It is a volunteer association supported by family, business, and corporate memberships, and it keeps the community informed through the Beaver Bank – Kinsac Bulletin, delivered to every home. Readers learn about local events, read about interesting neighbours, and discover more about the history of their community.
Also, the BBCAA:
Holds monthly meetings as well as an annual town hall meeting. All meetings are held at the Community Centre and are open to the public.
Formally requested the RCMP to establish a Community Policing Office. It has been in operation for over 10 years and is staffed by volunteers in our community.
Obtained a grant from Industry Canada for three public Internet access sites in Beaver Bank, which are supervised by volunteers and student employees. Also known as the C@P Site.
Markets locally-made “Beaver Banks” as a fund-raiser. You’ve heard of “Piggy Banks”, well these are “Beaver Banks”. These ceramic banks, are made by Effie’s Ceramics of Dartmouth; exclusively for the BBCAA. They are sold at Hartlen’s Esso and the Community Policing Office for $15 (no tax).
Gives a voice to the community on school issues.

Most of the Association’s operating funds are obtained through the sale of memberships. A Family membership is $20 per year, Business is $50 per year and Corporate is $500 per year. Business and Corporate members have ‘free’ space available in the Bulletin to tell the community about their businesses.
