|Organization Name:||Blue Mountain Village Association|
Incorporated in 1999, the Blue Mountain Village Association (BMVA) is a not-for-profit association and charitable organization formed to manage and maintain the common areas and facilities of the Blue Mountain Village, as well as provide events and marketing associated with the Village. Members consist of all stakeholders in the Village; every condominium & single-family home, and commercial business owners situated on Village land, as well as some owners in the surrounding Mountainside condominiums and Mountain Springs Resort.

Some businesses within close proximity of the Village recognize the benefit of becoming a BMVA member and join as Associate Members. Blue Mountain is Ontario’s largest four-season mountain resort. Recognized as a UNESCO Heritage Site, the area is nestled between the slopes of the Niagara Escarpment and the shores of Georgian Bay. It is located a 90-minute drive north of Toronto and the GTA. The combined Resort and Village property hosts multiple indoor and outdoor conference venues, all within walking distance of a variety of accommodations – hotel rooms, suites, and resort homes, the commercial village with over 50 shops and restaurants and a variety of mountain attractions and activities. The inaugural Blue Mountain Film Festival (BMFF) is being produced by BMVA in tandem with Blue Mountain Village Foundation and supported by founding sponsor Blue Mountain Village Resort.
