At the beginning of each new term of office, the Board of Directors reviews and confirms the vision, mission and values of the CRD.


We are diverse communities working together to serve the public good and build a vibrant, livable and sustainable region.


Our communities strive to achieve exemplary environmental stewardship, a dynamic, vibrant economy and an inclusive, caring society.  Regional Cooperation, mutually beneficial decision making and advancing shared interests shape the essence of the CRD — an effective, efficient and open organization.


We commit to embody these values every day in our governance and administration:
  • Visionary leadership
  • Mutual respect and collaboration among ourselves and with our partners, stakeholders and customers
  • Open, innovative and transparent governance
  • Efficient, effective and outcome-driven operations
  • Accountable, productive and fiscally responsible administration
