Located in the southeast corner of BC, The Regional District of East Kootenay is a local government dedicated to providing quality service to our residents and property owners. We work together as a partnership of municipalities and electoral (rural) areas to provide and coordinate services.
We take great pride in:
Unlike a municipality, which has one boundary and one set of taxpayers, Regional Districts have a different boundary (and a unique set of taxpayers) for every single service we offer. These "boundaries" are called service areas and can be very small (for example, one area within a small rural community), or very large (covering the entire region).
Some of the services we provide include: land use planning, water supply, sewage disposal, fire protection, recreation, mosquito control, street lighting, community parks, emergency management programs, solid waste and recycling, transit, 9-1-1, library grants, regional parks, and invasive plant control.
Our total population is 56,655 – and the breakdown, based on 2011 census, is as follows:
