Sub-regional Economic Development Services

As part of the Cariboo Regional District’s commitment to community economic development, the CRD has established and administers several economic development services to support economic development activities at a sub-regional level. These services are primarily funded through taxes levied from benefitting properties, based on the assessed residential property values. For many of these services, the CRD has entered into partnership agreements with local organizations, committing funds for the delivery of services which promote economic and community development.

Area ‘F’ Economic Development

Established in 2002, The Area “F” Economic Development Service (Bylaw No. 3706) was created to allow the Regional District to encourage and support economic development activities within Electoral Area F, designed to stimulate investment by the private sector. Electoral Area F is the sole participant in the service and requisition is by means of a tax on the residential assessed value of land and improvements.

The service is provided through contracts for various economic development initiatives, which currently includes tourism and event support and project-based agreements with the Williams Lake and District Chamber of Commerce, the Horsefly Board of Trade, the Likely Chamber of Commerce, the Big Lake Community Association and the 150 Mile Greenbelt, Trail and Heritage Society.
