A total of 12 Regional Service Commissions have been established within the Province to help communities communicate and collaborate regionally. This includes sharing common services, such as land use planning and solid waste management, and the development of a regional plan. These Commissions will serve communities and be governed by them, creating direct accountability to taxpayers in all regions.
