Regional District

Working to support rural, community and regional interests

What we do… What we strive for… What you can expect …

The Peace River Regional District (PRRD) was established in 1987 when the lands formerly included in the Peace River-Liard Regional District were divided into two regional districts. The PRRD encompasses approximately twelve million hectares (120,000 square kilometers), includes serving a population of 58,264 that reside in seven incorporated municipalities and four rural electoral areas.

Regional districts in British Columbia were established by the Provincial Government for three primary purposes:

  • to act as local government for their (unincorporated) electoral areas;
  • to provide the political and administrative frameworks necessary for member municipalities and electoral areas to collaborate in the provision of services; and,
  • to be the regional service body responsible for providing regional services to, and undertaking key activities on behalf of, theirentire regions.
