Governed by a 24-member Board of Directors, the CRD works collaboratively with First Nations and all levels of government while continuing to provide services to residents throughout the region.

Residents of the Capital Region

Residents of the Capital Region are represented, participate and realize benefits through three distinct types of CRD services:

  • Regional, where all 13 municipalities and three electoral areas are served
  • Sub-Regional, where two or more jurisdictions are served
  • Local or Electoral Areas, where only one jurisdiction is served.
