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.

South Cariboo Economic Development

The South Cariboo Economic Development service (Bylaw No. 3573 + 3478) was originally established in 2000, with amendments made in 2004 and 2007. The service was created to support and promote economic development in the south Cariboo. Electoral Areas G, H, and L participate in the service and taxation is based on the assessed value of land and improvements.

This service is provided through project and service delivery-based agreements with the 100 Mile Development Corporation and various community organizations. Currently, there are two contribution agreements in place with the 100 Mile Development Corporation to support the South Cariboo Tourism Marketing Strategy, and operations of the Visitor Information Centre. Agreements are also in place to make contributions to the 100 Mile House sani-dump to support tourism infrastructure and an advertising agreement with the Rotary Club of 100 Mile House for its mobile stage. This service also provides funding support for events in the south Cariboo.
