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.

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.
