Dedicated to initiating, encouraging and organising educational, cultural, recreational and community activities in Metchosin


For more than two decades the Metchosin Community Association (MCA) has hosted a garage sale in support of the MCA and other community groups. In 2020 and 2021, COVID put our garage sale on hold but it can now return for 2022. This will come as a huge relief for all those who suffered from garage sale withdrawal and for those who have, like us, accumulated a large pile of things to donate.

The sale will again include a one-day silent auction for high-end goods, antiques, and collectibles on Saturday, and two days of a boutique for special items along with a general yard sale of furniture, household goods, small working appliances, sporting goods, clothes, bicycles, tools, garden items, books and other ‘stuff’. All proceeds go directly to support the MCA and other local groups.

Everyone is welcome to donate items and to attend the sale. Donations will be accepted from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday, May 21st to Friday, May 27th. Extended hours for donations will be from 10 am to 7:30 pm on Thursday, May 26. If you wish to donate, please note that the following items cannot be accepted: Mattresses, exercise equipment, TV’s, sofas, stuffed armchairs, old shoes, soiled clothing, microwaves, computers, entertainment units, BBQs, large appliances, cribs, car seats, luggage, skis or magazines.

The 2022 sale will be held from 9 am to 3 pm on Saturday May 28 and Sunday May 29. No early birds – sale starts at 9:00 am sharp at the Metchosin Community House at 4430 Happy Valley Road.

Entry to the event will be by cash donation at the gate.

People attending are advised that we will be following the current COVID 19 guidelines in effect at the time of the sale.

For more information, please contact the MCA Office at 250-478-5155 or mcahouse@telus.net

Communicable Disease Prevention Plan for MCA

The Metchosin Community Association (MCA) requests that all program leads, and private renters review our organization’s Communicable Disease Prevention Plan and follow its guidelines. These guidelines are based on recommendations from BC Health.

Community House user groups and private renters are required to self-monitor and not use the facility if they are ill or/and have symptoms of communicable disease, or have had recent contact with someone who has a communicable disease.

The House capacity is current 100% (80 people).

Masks and Proof of Vaccines are no longer a requirement, however, the MCA strongly recommend that rental and program organizers err on the side of caution and consider masking and vaccination requirements, especially when there are high-risk participants or activities. The MCA also encourages that rentals and program organizers leave windows / doors open to promote better ventilation. The rental and program organizers are responsible for proper cleaning and disinfection of the house after each event.
