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 Columbiaīs 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 doesnīt 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.

Did you know? Fact Sheets about the CCRD and governance in the region are now available on our website! Please visit the Governance Study page for more information about the current Diagnostic Governance and Service Delivery Study!

CCRD Minutes in a Minute
April 2017

The April Board of Directors meeting took place on Thursday April 13th at the CCRD office in Bella Coola. A recording of the meeting can be found at http://www.ccrd-bc.ca as well as the complete draft meeting minutes.

The CCRD would like to welcome Bridget Horel to the team. With an MBA in Community Economic Development and experience supporting economic development initiatives in coastal communities, Ms. Horel brings a range of skills and an interest in rural and regional economic development to her position as Community Economic Development Officer.

The Board expressed appreciation to Tanis Shedden for her contributions to the Regional District and wished her well in her future plans.

Highlights from the April Board meeting include the following:
The CCRD will be starting an update of the Official Community Plan (OCP) in the region. The Board considered a draft Terms of Reference for the project and noted their expectation for broad community engagement.

The Board approved development of a schedule for extended operation hours at Thorsen Creek Waste and Recycling Centre for a two week period of time. The tipping fees will be reduced by 50% for properly sorted loads of residential waste during this same time period.

The CCRD recognizes that access to reliable and robust internet and communication connections is vital to the economic and social well-being of its residents. To that effect, the Central Coast Regional District is in support of investment and development in communications and connectivity infrastructure along the Central Coast for the benefit of residents in all Central Coast Communities.  

Funding opportunities are being explored for pool tank and mechanical system replacement at the Centennial Pool in Hagensborg.
The CCRD will be re-advertising for candidates for the Chief Administrative Officer position.

Jay Cheek, Partner at PMT Chartered Accountants presented the audit report and the 2016 Audited Financial Statements were approved.
The Board reviewed a report on the Draft Governance and Service Delivery Study which was initially presented in February. The study is being amended and will be returned to the Board in May for finalization and endorsement.

The Central Coast Chamber of Commerce has written to the Province to request the Ministerīs consideration of structural changes to the Central Coast Regional District and assistance in exploring the move of Denny Island to the Regional District of Mount Waddington.

The next CCRD Board of Directors meeting will be held Thursday May 11th. As always, the public is welcome to attend.

Did you know? Emergency Preparedness Week is May 7-13th. This is a national event coordinated by Public Safety Canada. The theme for 2017 is Plan. Prepare. Be Aware. Learn more at http://www.getprepared.gc.ca.
