Economic Development

Following the Collaborative Economic Development Meeting in October of 2014, the participants identified using a bottom-up approach as a suitable match to achieve the economic development outcomes community members and stakeholders envision for the region.  Community economic development principles are being used to drive the economic development services function of the CCRD.

What is Community Economic Development?

Community Economic Development is a process that demonstrates how everyone in the community has value to add to a healthy local economy and a role to play in developing it.


To build a sustainable economy for the residents and communities of the Central Coast Regional District.

What's going on?

The CCRD wants to hear from you and is working to engage with local businesses, entrepreneurs, artists, etc. to find out what you love about living and working in the Central Coast Regional District.  

An email listserv has been created thanks to BC Food Systems Network and the Bella Coola Valley Sustainable Agriculture Society.  It is designed to link growers with retailers, lodges, cafes, B+Bs, etc. If businesses are planning to order food outside the region, this listserv will give them the opportunity to source it locally, first.
