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.
