Central Coast Regional District

The Central Coast Regional District (CCRD) is nestled in the heart of the mid coast and is home to some of British Columbia´s most spectacular scenery and natural beauty. The area encompasses some 25,000 square kilometres and includes five electoral areas in the unincorporated communities of Bella Bella, Bella Coola, Denny Island, Ocean Falls and Oweekeno.

Incorporated in 1968, the CCRD is a regional government serving a population of less than 4,000 residents. The Regional District provides local and regional protective, recreational, environmental and transportation services to area ratepayers.


Everything that the Regional District does fits into three categories. The first category is to provide services such as fire protection, water systems and street lighting to residents in the rural areas. These services are generally confined to small geographic areas.

The second category is to provide services to a larger geographic area where it doesn´t make sense to duplicate that service for each area. Some examples are Land Use Planning, Economic Development, and regional Library services.

The third category the Board gets involved in is to try to influence the Federal or Provincial Government.

CCRD Minutes in a Minute

The regular board of directors meeting was rescheduled from Thursday, July 14 to Wednesday, July 20 to accommodate the attendance of all directors.

In June formal resignations were received from the Electoral Area A Director and Alternate Director.   This October a by-election will be held to fill the position of Electoral Area A Director.  Residents of Electoral Area A (Denny Island, Ocean Falls, and Owekeeno) will be informed of the nomination and election process by the CCRD Chief Election Officer.  As an interim measure, the board will make an appointment for the position of Alternate Director for Electoral Area A at the September board meeting.

The Healthy Communities Collaborative Agreement 2016-2019 with Vancouver Coastal Health Authority was supported.  The agreement outlines where CCRD and Vancouver Coastal Health Authority priorities align, which includes incorporating health and wellness in long-term plans, access to nutritional food, and economic development as it connects to the social determinants of health.
Some additional highlights from the July 20th board meeting include the following:
• A proposal for the Bella Coola Airport Master Plan Development was received and is being reviewed.
• A special meeting was called for August 4th to discuss the contract award associated with the construction of the recycling building at the Thorsen Creek Waste and Recycling Centre.
• A rezoning application was received for a property located in Electoral Area D, a public hearing will be scheduled for the end of August to consider zoning amendment Bylaw No. 465, 2016.
• The CCRD has accepted Vancouver Coastal Health´s invitation to attend the ´Moving Beyond Urban Centres: Active Transportation Forum´ in September.

Did You Know? A product of the CCRD Diagnostic Governance and Service Delivery Study will be a series of fact sheets on the services and functions of the CCRD?  These will be made available on the CCRD website this fall.    

NOTE: The minutes for the August 4 special meeting can be found here.

The CCRD Board of Directors passed a resolution to pursue recording options of regularly scheduled meetings for the sole purpose of enabling access to meetings for residents who live in remote areas of the Central Coast Regional District.

Disclaimer - The recording of board meetings is in a trial period and therefore technical, operational, and quality control issues are currently being worked out.  We appreciate your patience as we work through these issues.
