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

Highlights from the July Board meeting include the following:

The local Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) and Emergency Social Services (ESS) have been housed at the CCRD office in Bella Coola. The CCRD Board members took the opportunity to discuss the State of Local Emergency which was renewed for another 7-day period.

The Board of Directors appointed Travis Hall as the new Director for Electoral Area B, following a by-election that saw no candidates declared.  The CCRD welcomed Director Hall, who expressed his pleasure and is looking forward to proactively representing the CCRD.

A delegation from the Central Coast Chamber of Commerce (CCCC) and the Denny Island Community Development Association (DICDA) joined the meeting by telephone to provide a proposal to analyze solutions to resolve Denny Island governance and service delivery concerns.
The 2017 obstacle removal project at the Bella Coola airport is proceeding on schedule and on budget.

Wuikinuxv Nation is proceeding with the Nicknaqueet River Hydropower Project.
The CCRD Board passed a motion that the Active Communities Proposal be expanded to allow for development of a collaborative project between the CCRD Denny Island Recreation Commission and Heiltsuk Nation.
The Chief Administrative Officer and Directors Alison Sayers and Travis Hall will be attending the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) convention in September 2017.
