Residents of the Peace River Regional District are fortunate to have a number of local community organizations that provide recreation, arts and cultural events and programs throughout the region. If you are interested in renting facilities, attending an event or meeting or volunteering in your area please contact one of the groups below.

Preparing for the New Societies Act 

The new Societies Act will come info effect on November 28, 2016.  In the two years following that date, every pre-existing society will be required to “transition” to the new Act. A guide has been created to provide some basic information about the transition process and other matters that societies may wish to consider.  Check out Preparing for BC’s New Societies Act: A Guide to the Transition Process to download the document. For more information about the new Act, please visit the BC Registry Services.

New BC Societies Act – Presentation

On November 17 and 18, 2015 the PRRD hosted two seminars regarding the proposed changes to the BC Societies Act.  The information presented was tailored to groups in the region to provide some guidance as to what can be expected when the changes are implemented.  For a copy of the presentation, click here
