In the past 21 months we are proud to say that there was value gained,
from joining our Association. HIRA was active in many areas such as:
- The Ferry situation
- MPAC assessments
- The Municipal Budget
- The HIRA website
- Municipal Election Meeting
- Emergency Response
Many members were involved and contributed time and skills to working on these topics. The ferry situation and Budget issues remain ongoing concerns and if you would like to help, HIRA
will welcome your support.
