The BC Search and Rescue Society represents SAR groups from all over BC, and has divided the province into regions, each of which elects a representative to the BCSARA board. The regions attempt to group teams with common issues, and similar terrain types, and to represent their interests to the board as a whole.

There are currently 79 community-based Search and Rescue groups including  4 provincial organizations that also have representation with BCSARA, representing approximately 2500 volunteers.
