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.

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
May 11, 2017

The Central Coast Regional District (CCRD) Board of Directors held their regular monthly meeting on Thursday May 11th at the CCRD office in Bella Coola. A link to the recording of the meeting can be found at the bottom of this page.

The CCRD would like to express appreciation to the delegates who presented at the Board meeting. Chief Rose Hanuse Hackett, Tribal Manager Robert Duncan, and Project Manager John Ebell presented on Wuikinuxv Nation´s Nicknaqueet River Hydropower Project, requesting that the CCRD submit an application to the Strategic Priorities Fund to access additional funding for the project.

Janis Jones of the RCMP and Liz Lodge with public health at the Bella Coola General Hospital gave a presentation about Fentanyl use, how to recognize signs of an overdose, and how to prevent overdose with the use of Naloxone.  Naloxone Kits are available through the hospital, Nuxalk Administration office, and the RCMP. A training session will be held at the Nuxalk Administration Office in two weeks.  

Highlights from the May Board meeting include the following:

The CCRD is limited to two applications for the Federal Gas Tax Strategic Priorities Fund. The Board approved an application for the Centennial Pool Renewal Project, at the April 13th meeting, and had two projects to consider for the second application - the CCRD´s Shearwater/Denny Island Water System Project and the Wuikinuxv Nation Nicknaqueet River Hydropower Project.

Both of these projects are of high importance and the Board had a challenging decision to make. It was decided an application for the Shearwater/Denny Island Water System will be submitted. These are both projects that further the CCRDs Integrated Strategic Plan. The CCRD understands the importance of the Wuikinuxv Nation project and will be available to support this project in other, non-financial ways if possible.

The amended Central Coast Regional Service Delivery and Governance Study, was received and the finalized document was endorsed.

In support of the Nuxalk Nation´s application to the Rural Dividend Fund, for the Nuxalk Pathway to Aboriginal Tourism Project, the CCRD and the Nuxalk Nation are preparing a letter of partnership. The CCRD is pleased to be working with the Nuxalk Nation to further Aboriginal tourism in the Bella Coola Valley.

The Board of Directors submitted the name of Pete Kovanda to act as the Bella Coola representative on the North and Central Coast Ferry Advisory Committee until term expiry in December 2018.

The Board appointed Rodney Krimmer and Robert Duncan to the Economic Development Advisory Committee, both terms to expire Dec 31, 2017 at which time they may be eligible for re-appointment.

The next CCRD Board of Directors meeting will be held Thursday June 8th. As always, the public is welcome to attend.
