The Capital Regional District (CRD) has more than 200 service, infrastructure and financing agreements with municipalities and electoral areas to deliver services in the following categories:

  • regional, where all municipalities and electoral areas are served
  • sub-regional, where two or more jurisdictions are served
  • local, in the electoral areas where the CRD is the local government

The CRD is authorized to deliver these services by Letters of Patent or by bylaws. Each service has a defined set of participants, a defined purpose and boundary, method of cost recovery and sometimes a maximum amount to be requisitioned.

Through strategic and corporate planning, the strategic course for the CRD is set over a four-year mandate to respond to community needs and to deliver on the Board’s mission, vision and priorities and the organization’s ongoing service mandates and approved plans.

Each year, the service planning process identifies sustainable and efficient ways to implement actions outlined in the 2019-2022 Corporate Plan.

Community Need Summaries outline anticipated activities for the year ahead, subject to review by standing committees and the Board in open meetings.
