Vision Statement

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District is an innovative regional district, renowned for developing cost-effective, practicable solutions to local and regional service challenges. It is a responsible government, committed to strong fiscal stewardship and the careful management of public assets. It is an open and engaging body, proactive in its efforts to connect with residents, service participants, other orders of government, and key stakeholders.

The CSRD understands its important role as the local government for, and provider of local services to, the region’s unincorporated areas. The Regional District is equally aware, however, of its role as the governing body and regional service provider for the region as a whole. It is in this vein that the Board remains keenly aware of the need for regional thinking. 

The Secwépemc are important partners in economic development, service initiatives, and other endeavours aimed at achieving shared goals and addressing common needs. Member municipalities, provincial ministries, economic and regional development agencies, and community associations are also valued allies. The CSRD works closely with all of its partners, recognizing the importance of collaboration to the region’s prosperity.
