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
March 2017

The March board of directors meeting took place on Thursday, March 9 at the CCRD office in Bella Coola.  A recording of the meeting can be found on the below, as well as the complete draft meeting minutes.

The CCRD would like to thank the participants of the Solid Waste Advisory Group: Barney Kern, Carl Harestad, Doug Baker, Drew Kovacic, Fraser Koroluk, Kerry Boileau, Marty Nygaard, Percy Schooner, Peter Fralick, Russ Hilland, Steve Dishkin, Wayne Bittner, and Wally Webber for the time that they committed to the Solid Waste Management Planning process. Also, thank you to all those who filled out Solid Waste Surveys and congratulations to draw winner Julia Michalchuk.  The Solid Waste Management Plan was approved by the board of directors and will be submitted to the Province for review and approval.

Highlights from the March board meeting include the following:
• The Asset Management Investment Plan (AMIP) 2017 was endorsed, along with recommendations to advance CCRD asset management planning in coming years.  The AMIP provides a review of the regional district´s infrastructure assets:  what does the CCRD own?  What is the cost to replace the asset?  How much money needs to be invested annually (on average) to sustain the CCRD´s assets?
• An application to the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations to obtain a Forestry Licence to Cut and to amend the area of CCRD Licence of Occupation #5402268 (Snootli Creek Regional Park) was supported.  This will provide the necessary foundation to pursue works on lands in order to comply with Transport Canada regulations at the airport which ultimately will allow enhanced flight services.
• The board received the Bella Coola Airport Master Plan and will consider endorsement at the June board meeting.
• The board approved the 2017-2021 Five-Year Financial Plan.  The annual property tax levy increased by 2.1% over last year.
• Wuikinuxv Nation is moving towards hydro power and anticipates having access by year end.

The next CCRD board of directors meeting will be held April 13th. As always, the public are welcome to attend.
