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
June 8, 2017

The Central Coast Regional District (CCRD) Board of Directors held their regular monthly meeting on Thursday June 8th at the CCRD office in Bella Coola. A link to the recording of the meeting can be found at the bottom of this page.

Highlights from the June Board meeting include the following:

The Board of Directors accepted the resignation of Reg Moody and expressed their thanks for his past dedication to the Board and Regional District. The CCRD will be starting the by-election process, pursuant to the Local Government Act to fill the vacant seat on the Board of Directors.

A preface was prepared to the CCRD Service Delivery and Governance Study Final Report to acknowledge the depth of the effects of colonialism, genocide, and displacement of First Nations People from their traditional lands within the jurisdictional boundaries the BC Local Government Act identifies as the Central Coast Regional District. The Board acknowledged that it will be imperative, moving forward, that the traditional chiefs of Wuikinuxv, Heiltsuk and Nuxalk be respectfully engaged in any decisions that are made as a result of this study.

In the interests of encouraging younger people´s participation in local government, particularly women, the Board will consider the inclusion of child care expenses in an amendment to the Board Remuneration and Expenses Bylaw.  

The CCRD supported the application to the Northern Development Initiative Trust from the Heiltsuk Tribal Council for the Community Heating Systems Economic Diversification Investment Project.

Two applications were submitted by the CCRD to the Strategic Priorities Fund. One for the Centennial Pool Renewal Project and the other for the Denny Island Water System Project.

The final draft of the 2017 Bella Coola Airport Master Plan was endorsed by the Board and work is underway on the 2017 obstacle removal project at the Bella Coola Airport.

An open house for the Official Community Plan update will be held in the Bella Coola Valley in October 2017.
